Mission Statement

The Board of Assessors is required to assess all Real and Personal Property within the confines of the Town of Ashburnham, at full, fair cash value, this includes cyclical as well as Recertification (every 5 years) which are required by the Department of Revenue.

In addition, the Assessing Department must administer the processing of motor vehicle and boat excise tax bills, which are generated from the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles. We review applications for exemptions, 3ABC, Forms of List and Veterans applications.

The Assessors Office is the prime source of information regarding title and valuation of all Real and Personal Property accounts for the Town. We are committed to providing timely, accurate and courteous service to all the Citizens of Ashburnham.
