FY 12 Values Disclosed

Category : Land & Property

Department / Board / Committee : Board of Assessors

Type : General


The Westwood Board of Assessors is pleased to announce that disclosure of our new values is currently available. Over the past year, Town Assessor, Debbie Robbins and consultants from Vision Appraisal Technologies have verified all property sales from 2010 and collected income and expense information from Commercial and Industrial properties. This information was carefully analyzed and formulated into property values.
            Valuation books will be available in the High St. Library and Town Hall (580 High St.).  Also available on the Town Website under Forms and Publications in PDF report "FY12 Old to New Report"  from November 7, 2011 to November 14, 2011 during normal business hours. Anyone may check any value in town by using these books, which will be arranged alphabetically by address. We will also have these values posted on the town’s web site. Taxpayers should compare the assessments of similar properties in their neighborhood to their own property’s assessment.
            Any taxpayer who is concerned about the accuracy of the valuation placed on his property may call the Assessor’s office at 781-326-1904 during this one week disclosure period or visit our office during normal business hours. Our hours are Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Tuesday from 8:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
            When the disclosure process is complete we will request final certification of our assessments from the Department of Revenue. Tax bills should be issued by December 31, 2011.
