AUGUST 2017 UPDATES
NOTICE OF TAX CLASSIFICATION HEARING

Posted 8/24/17, Town Hall and Nahant.org
Item: 8/24/17 and 8/31/17
The Board of Selectmen will hold a public hearing on Thursday September 7, 2017 at 8 PM in the Town Hall on the issue of tax classification. The purpose of the hearing is to allow taxpayers the opportunity to present their views on whether or not Residential, Commercial, Industrial, Open Space, and Personal Property should be taxed with one rate for all property classes or to use different tax rates for different classes of property. The hearing will include a presentation by the Board of Assessors.

At the conclusion of the public hearing the Board of Selectmen shall determine whether or not “one” tax rate shall be applied for the Fiscal Year 2018 tax rate. Currently the Town taxes at a single tax rate for all property classes. In addition, the Board of Selectmen will determine whether or not to allow exemptions for small commercial businesses and owner occupied residential properties. All concerned taxpayers are encouraged to attend to present their views orally or in writing.

If there are questions about the hearing, please contact Sheila Hambleton in the Assessor’s office at 781-581-0212.
