2017 Tax Rates Have Arrived!

The New Year is upon us, and with that comes the new residential tax rates! Below you’ll find a list of several towns in the Greater Boston Area along with their corresponding 2016 and 2017 rates.


TAX RATES are something to consider when looking to buy your next home as they make some towns more affordable than others. While I don’t believe it’s a reason to avoid certain towns, it should be something you should consider when comparing homes.

You’ll find that the tax rates for this group of desirable towns start out at $9.49 in fairly urban Woburn, and top out at $19.06 in Acton, where there are far less commercial properties. Towns that have more businesses subsidizing the towns’ income, allow for lower residential tax rates. The more suburban or rural towns result in higher taxes.

Lowest Tax Rates (Ranging from $9.94 -$11.89):

  • Burlington
  • Medford
  • Melrose
  • Newton
  • Needham
  • Wellesley
  • Woburn

Highest Tax Rates (Ranging from $17.62 – $19.06):

  • Acton
  • Carlisle
  • Sudbury
  • Wayland

Average Tax Rates (Ranging from $12.28 – $14.81):

  • Arlington
  • Bedford
  • Belmont
  • Concord

Lexington’s “Center Streetscape Plan” Unfolds!

Lexington Center Streetscape

Ever wonder about the “Save Lexington Center” signs popping up all over town? Last night’s meeting at Cary Hall rolled out ideas for some wonderful improvements coming our way. A crowd came out to hear the “Lexington Center Streetscape Design” Committee talk about their proposals on sidewalks, lighting, landscaping and much more!  I love their proposal for “wire cut” smooth, natural brick laid in a charming herringbone pattern to replace the current sidewalks.  Our center will go from charming and attractive to “Wow!” once these plans are implemented.

Get up-to-date on the plan at the website: Lexington Streetscape ; this site included proposals, articles and news stories to keep you up-to-date.

A crowd gathered on the evening of January 11th to hear the ad hoc Commitete unfold their plans for an improved Lexington center.
