Marblehead announces 2018 Property Tax Rate

(Click here to download a pdf of this report.)

The property tax rate for Fiscal Year 2018 (July 2017-June 2018) will be $11.02, just a penny higher than 2017’s $11.01.

Here is a breakdown in recent years showing the impact of debt exclusions (for items such as schools and the new transfer station):

As usual, the Board of Selectmen voted to maintain the commercial rate at the same level as the residential rate.

The median Single Family Home assessment for FY 2018 increased 4.3% to $603,000 and the median tax bill for FY 2018 will increase 4.4%, or by $281, to $6,645.

I will provide more details, including a breakdown of how the rate was calculated, in a report this coming weekend.

Meanwhile, may we all have something for which we can be grateful this Thanksgiving.
