Assessing

CHATHAM'S CERTIFIED FY18 TAX RATE $ 4.87 / $ 1,000


Mission Statement:

The Assessors Office is responsible for determining the full and fair market value of every property in Chatham as of January 1st every year per Massachusetts General Law. We maintain a complete database of all property, its owners and their assessments. In addition to the Real Property Valuations, the Assessing department determines the values for Personal Property accounts, as well as maintaining the Motor Vehicle and Boat Excise Tax file. Abatement requests for Motor Vehicle and Boat Excise, Real Property, and Personal Property taxes as well as applications for Personal Residential Exemptions are handled through our Office.

We strive to accurately assess property and provide prompt and courteous help to the public. We hope you will find answers to most of these topics on our website; however we welcome you to contact us if you would like any more information.
