Happy New… Taxes!

January 2, 2013

Don’t worry — this has nothing to do with the “fiscal cliff” that we’re all so sick of hearing about… simply a posting of our residential property tax rates for 2013. Numbers reflect rate per $1,000 of a home’s assessed value.

CAMBRIDGE — $8.66 with a residential exemption savings of $1,755.37 (If you own a home in Cambridge, say YEEHAW! because our taxes are low, low, low thanks to our #1 tax payer, MIT, as well as all of the various pharma and tech companies based here.)

Important: if you bought a home in Cambridge last year and haven’t already done so, don’t forget to file your residential exemption application no later than January 20, 2013!

SOMERVILLE — $13.42 with a residential exemption savings of $1,885.97

Important: if you bought a home in Somerville last year and haven’t already done so, don’t forget to file your residential exemption application no later than April 1, 2013!
