Taxes on Cape Cod

I am often asked what the tax rates on the Cape are.  While we do have a state income tax, we don't have a lot of taxes that other states do. 

Here are the latest tax rates for the towns on Cape Cod.  The residential rates are set by the towns and approved by the state/commonwealth.  They are published on the MA state web site, but the last updates were in 2006.

These are the residential rates per $1000  (the rate x the assessed value = tax bill)

BARNSTABLE  6.31          BOURNE   6.5          BREWSTER  5.58          CHATHAM  3.73
 
DENNIS   4.26                EASTHAM  4.69        FALMOUTH  5.43          HARWICH  5.89
 
MASHPEE  6.34               ORLEANS  4.16       PROVINCETOWN  5.05   SANDWICH  9.36
 
TRURO   4.4                  WELLFLEET  4.59     YARMOUTH  5.93

Happy listing and selling!

Well, you raise an important point... we don't have an income tax in New Hampshire, but our property taxes are some of the highest in the country... however, our cost of living is much lower than Mass., so there are always pros and cons to where one choses to live.

I think MA is still called taxachusetts by many.
