• Assessors
The Assessors' Department has a Principal Assessor and office staff along with an appointed board who serve on a part-time basis.

The Assessors' Office is responsible for administering Massachusetts property tax law effectively and equitably and for producing accurate and fair appraisals of all taxable property. In Holden, the property tax contributes over 70% of the town's operating budget. Taxable property would include not only real estate, but personal property for businesses as well.

The motor vehicle excise tax is administered through the Assessors' Office. Adjustments to the bill are made when a car is sold, the owner moves out of state or the plates are transferred to a new vehicle.

The Principal Assessor and staff are available to answer questions during regular office hours and are happy to provide assistance in filling out abatement applications, exemptions or deferral forms.

FY2024 Tax Rate: $14.15
