2017 Tax Rates Have Arrived!

The New Year is upon us, and with that comes the new residential tax rates! Below you’ll find a list of several towns in the Greater Boston Area along with their corresponding 2016 and 2017 rates.

TAX RATES are something to consider when looking to buy your next home as they make some towns more affordable than others. While I don’t believe it’s a reason to avoid certain towns, it should be something you should consider when comparing homes.

You’ll find that the tax rates for this group of desirable towns start out at $9.49 in fairly urban Woburn, and top out at $19.06 in Acton, where there are far less commercial properties. Towns that have more businesses subsidizing the towns’ income, allow for lower residential tax rates. The more suburban or rural towns result in higher taxes.
