Wrentham Property Owners
In accordance with guidelines established by the Massachusetts Department of Revenue, the Board of Assessors has completed a Triennial Reassessment program for all properties within the Town. The Massachusetts Department of Revenue has given Wrentham a Preliminary Certification of values. These proposed values are pending Final Certification by the Department of Revenue. The Public Disclosure period is a part of the triennial Revaluation and Re-Certification of values that is required by statue.
The proposed values are calculated at "Full and Fair Cash Value" using sales data between 1/1/2013 and 12/31/2014. The valuation date for FY2016 is January 1, 2015. The rationale for full value assessment is for equity in the distribution of the tax burden. The Revaluation resulted in value increases of 4% to 8% for most properties. The valuation project was completed with assistance from the PK Valuation Group.
The Public Disclosure period is to provide taxpayers an opportunity to inquire and discuss the proposed new assessments. The Assessors will hold public disclosure for Wrentham taxpayers from Thursday November 5, 2015 to Thursday November 12, 2015. The proposed values will be available at the Wrentham Town Hall located in the Assessor's Office, the Fiske Library and on-line on the Assessor's website.
Please contact the Assessor's office (Monday, Wednesday and Thursday 8-4, Tuesday 8-7 and Friday 8-12) about any questions concerning the proposed assessments or call 508-384-5408.
