Searches can be done based on Map Number, Street Name, or simply scrolling through each page. If you have any questions regarding the use of the maps please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The assessed value (or assessment) is the value of property to be used for local taxation, as determined by the Assessors according to Massachusetts General Laws & regulations set by the Commissioner of Revenue. Assessed values in Massachusetts are based on "full and fair cash value" or 100 percent of the fair market value.
The Assessors do not determine taxes. The municipality itself determines the level of property taxation, through its Town Meeting. Similarly, the Assessors don't decide who is entitled to relief on their property tax bills through exemptions; rather they are established by state law.
The Community Preservation Act was adopted by Pembroke voters in 2006 and establishes a funding source financed by surcharge revenues, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (with matching funds), for the purpose of open space, historical preservation and community housing projects and purchases. An application for exemption from the C.P.F. Surcharge based on income must be filed annually with the Board of Assessors. If you believe you are eligible please contact the Assessors Office. The filing of the application does not stay the collection of the tax.
