Mattapoisett issues tax rate correction

Jan 11, 2021

MATTAPOISETT — The Town of Mattapoisett’s Fiscal Year 2021 Actual Tax Rate is incorrectly shown on the current mailing of the Real Estate and Personal Property Tax Bills due to an inadvertent printing error. 

While the FY21 Actual Tax Rate is incorrectly shown on the Tax Bills, the calculation of the Real Estate Tax or Personal Property Tax was based on the correct FY2021 Tax Rate of $12.96 per $1,000.00, and so is accurate.

To verify accuracy of the tax bills, please use the following formula:

(Assessed value / $1,000) x $12.96 = Annual Tax.

For example, if a resident’s assessed home value was $400,000, the FY21 tax calculation would be the following.

($400,000 / $1,000) x $12.96 = $5,184.

The Town of Mattapoisett apologizes for any inconvenience this inadvertent printing error may have caused.

For questions regarding this matter, please contact the Treasurer/Collector Kristie A. Costa, at 508-758-4100, extension 206 or by email at
