The Board of Assessors wishes to thank all residents and taxpayers for their cooperation.
WHAT IS A CYCLICAL REINSPECTION?
The Department of Revenue and Massachusetts General Laws require the Board of Assessors to maintain a re-inspection program of the properties within the community. The program consists of an inspection of all properties in Saugus every 10 years i.e. Cyclical Re-inspection.
WHY ARE WE DOING A CYCLICAL REINSPECTION?
The Board of Assessors is responsible to maintain a full and fair market value of all properties in Saugus. This can only be accomplished if the data we have is accurate. The collection and maintenance of current and accurate property inventory data is a critical element in determining uniform, fair market value.
HOW ARE WE DOING A CYCLICAL REINSPECTION?
An inspection will be completed to all properties in the town unless the property has been visited within the last four years. The data collector is a member of the assessing staff and will carry both a picture ID and a letter from the office. If no one is at home, the data collector will leave a door hanger to notify the homeowner that someone from this office was on the property.
WHAT IS THE END RESULT OF A CYCLICAL REINSPECTION?
The final goal is uniform, fair market value of all properties in Saugus. In other words, everyone is treated fairly, consistently and equitably.
