July 1st kicked off the new 2019 fiscal year for the Town. All property owners have been mailed their real estate tax bills which include the initial working assessment rates.
The bills reflect changes in the real estate market, building permit changes, inspections, and increased desirability of the Town of Natick. Some residents have noted substantial increases in the value assessment of their homes and overall taxes due.
The State's review of the Town's tax assessments is underway, and is anticipated to conclude in late September. And, the Board of Selectmen set the tax rate in early November. Residents can expect to see the integration of these numbers on the third quarter bill in late December.
