Assessor's Office

Residents of the Town of Ipswich please note the Select Board will hold a public hearing Monday, November 15, 2021 at 7:25 PM to discuss the Annual Classification of Real Estate Taxes prior to the issuance of tax bills.

This is a reminder that Chapter Land applications are due October 1, 2021. If you have not filled out your application, please take a moment to fill it out and return it to the assessor's office. Thank you.

The Assessor’s Office is responsible for valuing all real and personal property within the Town of Ipswich for tax purposes. We are also responsible for administering motor vehicle and boat excise tax, however, the Assessors do not determine value for these excise tax bills. Abatements for real estate, personal property, motor vehicle excise, and boat excise are the responsibility of the Assessors.

Other Functions

Another function of the Assessor’s Office is to send Statutory Exemption and Tax Deferral forms to property owners who have received an exemption / deferral during the previous year. The most common exemptions are qualifying veterans, seniors, and blind.
