BOARD OF ASSESSORS
In accordance with Massachusetts General Laws, the Fiscal Year 2017 assessed values for all properties in the Town of Seekonk have been adjusted to full and fair market value as of January 1, 2016 and approved
by the Department of Revenue.
The next Board of Assessor's Meeting is on
Tuesday, May 23, 2017
at 5:00 P.M . - In the Assessor's Office
PUBLIC NOTICE/BOARD OF ASSESSORS/RE: PROPERTY INSPECTION
The Department of Revenue requires that every community re-inspect its real estate periodically. (SEE LINK ABOVE)
The state suggests reviewing a portion of properties every year rather than having a huge expense for all inspections
in one year's budget. As a result, the Seekonk Board of Assessors will inspect some of its property every year. In
addition to meeting state requirements, the objective of this project is to assure the accuracy of the Town's assessing
data. All inspections are done by the Assessors' Department.
This person will go to different streets and inspect both the interior and the exterior of the property. The person will
have Town identification with his or her photograph on it and will not inspect the interior of the property unless a person
18 or older is present. If no one is available for the interior inspection, a notice will be left on the doorknob requesting
that the resident call the Assessor's Office at (508)336-2980 to set up an appointment to view the property interior.
The Board of Assessors urges the public to be cooperative with the inspector and understand that by assuring the
accuracy of assessing information, the Town will ensure that every homeowner pays his/her fair share in taxes.
The Seekonk Assessor's Department strives to serve the taxpayers by valuation and classification of property
in accordance with standards set by Massachusetts General Laws through the practice of policies and
procedures that promote good public realations, provide user friendly access to data, maximize resources,
and maintain equity, accuracy and fairness.
