slides: Highest Taxed Communities in Central Mass for 2013

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

 

The City of Worcester held its tax classification hearing on Tuesday night, and GoLocalWorcester looks at how the rates for the 2013 fiscal year stack up with other communities in the region.

Business and community leaders came together last week to present a unified front in supporting Line 185 from the City's tax rate table, which sets a residential tax rate of $18.58 and a commercial tax rate of $30.85, representing a 4 percent increase to each tax class. The City Council voted 9-2 to approve that rate, with Councilors Konnie Lukes and George Russell dissenting.

A few communities have yet to have their tax rates for FY2013 approved by the Massachusetts Department of Revenue's Division of Local Services. Southbridge was among the higher rates in FY2012, with $17.83 per $1,000 in assessed value for all types of property.Last year Shrewsbury had a flat tax rate of $11.11 per $1,000 of valuation. West Boylston also had the same rate for both residential and commercial property at $16.81. Leominster came in at $16.72 across the board in FY2012. In Marlborough, last year's residential tax rate was $14.80 and the commercial rate was $29.04. Northborough's tax rate was $15.49 for all properties, and Northbridge's rate was $12.81.

Editor's Note: The tax rate in Bolton for FY2013 was approved late yesterday. Due to its high ranking in the region, GoLocalWorcseter has made a late addition to its list.
