Massachusetts Property Tax Updates

UPDATED june 2021

Fiscal Year 2021 Rapacity Still Has Life

In Massachusetts almost all of the Fiscal Year 2021 property tax bills have been sent. The Fiscal Year 2021 begins on July 1, 2020 and ends on June 30, 2021. In recent years, the Assessors seem to have been sending revised or omitted property tax bills with greater frequency. These revised or omitted Fiscal Year 2021 property tax bills must be completed by June 20, 2021. If a taxpayer receives this unpleasant surprise, he may file for an abatement with the local Board of Assessors within 3 months after the tax bill is sent. Once the June 20 revised or omitted property tax date has passed the assessor must wait until Fiscal Year 2022 to send another property tax bill. This limitation does not apply to personal property tax bills issued after an audit or when there have been improvements to the property that increases the value by greater than 50%.
