Mission Statement

The role of the Assessors Office, under the direction of the Board of Assessors, is to list and value all Real and Personal Property throughout the town of Harvard. The Department of Revenue requires that all property is valued at full and fair cash value which ensures that all property owners pay their fair and equitable share of the yearly tax burden. The Assessors are obligated to revalue all properties yearly and, once every three years, undergo a state recertification audit.

The Assessors Office also administers the following programs:
        Real Estate and Personal Property Abatements
        Personal Property Forms of List
        Real Estate Exemptions
        Chapter Land
        3ABC Exemptions
        Income & Expense Forms
        Motor Vehicle Abatements
        Abutters Lists
        Name/Address Changes
        Map updates

The Assessors Office is available to answer your questions and concerns during regular business hours.
