Board of Assessor's Office

The FY 2023 tax rate for the Town of Monson is $15.86 per thousand.

Notice of Inspections occuring in Town.

Why do the Assessors need to perform Inspections?

Per Mass. General Law Chapter 59, Sect. 39 all municipalities in the Commonwealth are required to assess all real and personal property at "full and fair cash value." To achieve this, the Department of Revenue mandates that each municipality do a full data collection at each of its parcels at least once every ten years. Because of the ten-year repeating cycle, these inspections are referred to as "cyclical inspections."

Inspections will be performed by Bishop and Associates.  Data collectors from Bishop and Associates carry Town of Monson issued identification and have notified the Police Department of their presence in Town.  

The Assessing Office may have several reasons to visit your home, including:

1.    For your home’s cyclical inspection (at least once every ten years)

2.    To inspect any permitted alteration work 

3.    To verify property sales 

4.    Review of Personal Property
