How are my taxes determined?

During the town budget process, the financial needs of the town are examined on a department-by-department basis.  The Board of Selectmen and the Board of Finance arrive at a final budget, which is funded primarily by property taxes. This budget must then be approved by referendum. The Board of Finance then sets the Mill Rate, which is the dollar amount of tax due per $1,000 in assessed property in town.

The Mill Rate will be set in May for the fiscal year 2022-2023.
