Board of Assessors

Who We Are and What We Do


The Assessors in Stow are an elected board required to value all property in their community annually at full and fair cash value (market value) as outlined in Chap. 59 of the Massachusetts General Laws. The goal of assessors is to provide equity in assessing, thereby providing tax equity. For real estate and personal property, the Department of Revenue is charged, by statute, with the responsibility of certifying, every five years, that the assessors are complying with the statutes and that they do it fairly and equitably.

The market value of residential properties is determined by using valid sales of similar properties from the year preceding January first, the assessment date.
