The mission of the Assessing Department is to serve the public interest and help assure the financial stability of North Andover by exhibiting the highest level of competence and professionalism. To this end, the Department's staff pledges its efforts toward the aocomplishment of four critical objectives:
- Timely performance of our statutory duties.
- Attainment of fair and equitable assessments consistent with the Department of Revenue guidelines.
- Maximization of tax base growth revenue.
- Administration of the property and excise tax systems in a prompt, courteous, honest, and thorough manner.
The Assessors' Department operates under the authority of the Department of Revenue. It has a full time Chief Assessor, an office staff and a board that serve on a part-time basis. The Assessing Department establishes market based valuation assessments for the real estate parcels and personal property estates in the Town of North Andover. Real estate valuations for fiscal 2018 are currently available. The office is responsible for adhering to strict certification requirements of the Department of Revenue. To meet these requirements, the assessors are obligated to revalue all properties yearly and, once every five years, undergo a state recertification audit.
The motor vehicle excise tax is administered through the Assessor's Office. Adjustments to excise tax are made when a car is sold or the owner moves out of state and the plates are cancelled or transferred to a new vehicle. A person must apply for an adjustment; forms are available here.
The Assessor's Office is available to assist the public with questions and concerns. Assessor's maps may be purchased for $2.00 per map or $100 per set.
