Board of Assessors

The North Adams Board of Assessors consists of three members appointed by the mayor. Members of the Board of Assessors serve three-year terms and require reappointment by the Mayor and confirmation by the City Council. Vacancies occurring on the Board may be filled in the same manner, but only for the balance of an unexpired term.

Under the provisions of Massachusetts General Laws, Chapters 58 to 65C, the Board of Assessors fall under the jurisdiction of the Massachusetts Commissioner of Revenue who may revise rules, regulations, and guidelines, as deemed necessary to establish minimum standards of assessment performance. Before assessment values, new growth, and tax rates are set, they must be certified by the Department of Revenue on an annual basis. Every five years, the Department of Revenue will send an audit team to the City to evaluate the methods used by the Board of Assessors in order for the City to be certified for revaluation.
