The role of the Assessors Office, under the direction of the Board of Assessors, is to list and value all Real and Personal Property throughout the town of Harvard. The Department of Revenue requires that all property is valued at full and fair cash value which ensures that all property owners pay their fair and equitable share of the yearly tax burden. The Assessors are obligated to revalue all properties yearly and, once every three years, undergo a state recertification audit.
The Assessors Office also administers the following programs:
- Real Estate and Personal Property Abatements
- Personal Property Forms of List
- Real Estate Exemptions
- Chapter Land
- 3ABC Exemptions
- Income & Expense Forms
- Motor Vehicle Abatements
- Abutters Lists
- Name/Address Changes
- Map updates
The Assessors Office is available to answer your questions and concerns during regular business hours. You may also contact us by email. We are happy to provide assistance in filling out abatement applications, chapter applications and exemption applications. Our goal is to provide courteous and efficient service.
