Spring is Here!

Spring is here and the Assessors office is busy wrapping up Fiscal Year 2019 and preparing for Fiscal Year 2020.

The exemption deadline has closed as of April 1st for Fiscal Year 2019. However, it is not too early to start getting documentation prepared for Fiscal Year 2020 applications.  Our office can start accepting applications on July 1st, which is the “qualification” date for FY2020.  These exemptions, as provided by state law, can benefit seniors with low income and/or assets, blind persons, disabled veterans, and others.  If you have questions regarding these programs and to see if you may qualify, please refer to the exemption links on our website or call us at 508-647-6420.  We can discuss and review applications on a walk in or appointment basis.

Did you receive an exemption in FY2019?  We will be mailing out applications in late July to all FY2019 recipients.  Remember, the applications need to be filled out annually

Looking for property information, please check out our Assessment database which is integrated with our WebGIS site.  The site provides the most commonly requested assessor's information such as assessed values, ownership information, land information, and legal deed references. Our ownership information is updated on a regular basis throughout the year as deeds are received. For those in need of further information, such as appraisers and homeowners, the official Property Record Card is also now online. The same card you can get in our office you can now get at home!
