Provincetown Taxpayers:

The mission of the Assessor's Office is to serve the taxpayers of Provincetown with professionalism, courtesy and accuracy. While the Department has a myriad of responsibilities, the most important is the valuation of all real and personal property in Provincetown. In accordance with State Law, values are updated annually to reflect full and fair value and are certified every five years by the Massachusetts Department of Revenue. In addition to valuation, the Assessor's office is also responsible for processing personal exemptions, Scale calculations, property transfers, permit and cyclical property reviews, mailing address changes, preparation of abutter's lists, motor vehicle and boat excise abatement processing among other responsibilities.

FY 2019 Tax Billing and the Residential Exemption
Residents who have previously qualified for a Residential Exemption will see the exemption applied to the 1st half (fall 2018) tax bill. The first half tax bill, due November 1, 2018 is  now an actual tax bill, and will have a new tax rate and a new Assessed Value. Adoption of a Residential Exemption must be voted on annually by the Selectmen. The Selectmen voted to adopt a Residential Exemption on August 27, 2018. Recipients of the Exemption in FY 2018 will automatically qualify for FY 2019 provided that your qualifying information is the same. If you are a domiciled resident but are not currently receiving the Residential Exemption, you may file an application after you receive your fall tax bill. The application deadline is April 1, 2019. Please provide all the information requested to ensure application approval.
