About Massachusett's Ad Valorem (on value) Tax

Massachusetts property real estate taxes are calculated by multiplying the property's value by the location's ad valorem tax rate.

Property tax rates are also known as property mill rates. This page shows the rates for MA on a map as well as in tabular form.

Taxable property in Massachusetts is assigned to one of four classes: commercial, industrial, open space, or residential. The tax to be paid on a property is based upon the fair market value of that asset.

Factors used by assessors when calculating the value of a property include: location, currently usage, acreage, and building size.

Property tax exemptions exist for eligible senior citizens and veterans, religous and philanthropic institutions, and blind individuals. The Massachusetts Department of Revenue website has more information about qualifying exemptions.

For more details about exemptions for seniors, veterans, and legally blind persons, contact your local assessor.
