The residents of Nahant (20% increase), Kingston (11.8% increase), and Mashpee (11.3% increase) will need to open their wallets a lot more next year to pay for the double digit increases in property taxes.
According to 2008 municipal finance data included in the report, annual property tax increases were above average in Amesbury (7.9 percent), Burlington (7.9 percent), Eastham (9.3 percent), Fall River (6.7 percent), Falmouth (7.2 percent), Franklin (9.9 percent), Harvard (9.9 percent), Kingston (11.8 percent), Lawrence (9.9 percent), Lexington (9 percent), Longmeadow (9.7 percent), Mashpee (11.3 percent), Methuen (8.6 percent), Nahant (20 percent), Nantucket (8.3 percent), North Adams (9.3 percent), Northfield (8.5 percent), Orleans (8.1 percent), Plympton (8.7 percent), Raynham (8.8 percent), Rowley (9.5 percent), Scituate (11.6 percent), and Sharon (10.3 percent).
I thought Prop. 2 1/2 limited property tax increases to 2 1/2% per year. This appears to be a loophole large enough to drive a T Commuter Rail Train through!
Please put a stop to these double digit property tax increases, before we all are forced to move out of this state after loosing our homes to the tax man.
