Department Responsibilities:

The assessors are responsible for valuing all real and personal property within the Town of Lincoln for tax purposes. Our assessments will differ from an independent appraiser due to the mass appraisal methods required under Massachusetts General Law Chapter 59 and the time frame of which the assessments reflect.

We are also responsible for administering motor vehicle excise tax, however, the assessors do not determine value for these excise tax bills. The values are set strictly by the state. Abatements for real and personal property, and motor vehicle are the responsibility of the assessors.

Please see the Board of Assessors page for more details on their mission and meeting agenda's/minutes.
