Property Assessments

The Amherst Assessing Office is responsible for calculating the Assessed Value of each property in Amherst and ensuring that each is assessed equitably in relation to market value. Property taxes are calculated based on the assessed value of each property. A ratio study is done yearly using valid market sales and is finalized by the Department of Revenue. The 2017 Equalization Ratio is 91%. Amherst utilizes Vision Government Solutions of Northboro, MA. The assessed values of Amherst properties can be found on the link below.
