Property Tax Rates
At present, Hudson, Maynard and Stow have set new tax
rates. Berlin and Bolton are still waiting to get figures back
from the State. Stow voted this past summer to retain a flat
tax rate, therefore, everything in Stow will be taxed at
$13.82/$1000 Hudson Selectmen unanimously voted to tax
commercial and industrial property (CIP) at the maximum
allowed by law (1.83), hence Hudson's new rates are
$9.52/$1000 for residential and $20.79/ $1000 for CIP. Maynard
Selectmen decided on a CIP multiplier of approximately 1.57,
hence new rates for residential are $12.76/$1000 for
residential and $21.78 for CIP.
While CIP rates didn't dramatically increase in Maynard and
Hudson, commercial values have. It appears that in 2005 (data
is based off of a snapshot taken on 1/1/06) commercial rents
went up approximately 11% in both Hudson and Maynard.
