The assessors are responsible for valuing all real and personal property within the City of Gloucester 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 and boat 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 and boat excise are the responsibility of the assessors.
