Mass Residential Tax Rates

The property tax on a home can have a significant impact on real estate values in a town, as it affects how much buyers can afford to pay. If a buyer takes out a mortgage on a house or condominium, many lenders will collect the property tax monthly from the borrower, and pay the city or town directly. Local property taxes in Massachusetts are a product of the tax rate established by the town, and the assesed value of the home. Many towns have different tax rates for residential and commerical property. Listed below are the residential property tax rates* for most of the towns in Massachusetts. Voted in by Massachusetts residents in 1980, and taking effect in 1982, "Prop 2 1/2" greatly stablized residential property tax rates, and therefore property taxes, accross the state. Prior to the passage of the state-wide Proposition 2 1/2, towns and cites had much more flexability in establishing their taxe rates in any given year.
