MA Property Tax

Massachusetts Property Tax comprises a major portion of the funds required to finance the public services provided by the local authorities in the state of Massachusetts. All real property located within the common wealth of Massachusetts is subject to real estate taxes. However, property tax exemptions are provided by the statute of the state in some cases.

Massachusetts Property Tax Rates

Moreover, the Massachusetts Property Tax Rates are determined locally by the local authorities, after taking into account the financial requirements of their respective jurisdictions. However, the tax bill you may receive for your real property in Massachusetts is not directly proportional to the prevailing MA property tax rate.

This is because the real property taxes in Massachusetts are determined by the assessed value of property. The assessment is performed locally within a municipality and is based on the fair market value of a property. For property tax assessment purposes, real estate in Massachusetts are classified into several groups, such as residential, commercial, open space and industrial. The state maintains a database of Massachusetts Property Tax Records where you can search valuable information about the ownership and assessed value of a real property.

Property Tax Exemption

While MA Real Estate Taxes are applicable to all sorts of properties, there are several property tax exemptions available for certain categories of property owners. Veterans, blinds and the surviving spouse or children of a firefighter or a police officer killed while on duty are some groups of citizens who can apply for MASS Property Tax Exemptions.

For further information regarding any aspect of MA Property Taxes, visit the official sites of the state government.
