Enter your property's assessed value, and try changing the town's budget to see how it will affect your property taxes in 2017. You can look up the taxable value of your property in the tax commitment book.

The editable numbers here are the amounts raised at town meeting. The actual budgeted amounts may be higher, with the balance covered by TIF, income, or surplus. I've attempted to make notes when the the budget committee has made recommendations to this effect. The school commitment and county tax fields are also editable, although these will not be determined at town meeting.
Please note that this calculator produces estimates and your actual property taxes will be affected by factors that are still unknown at the time that the budget is passed, including the school commitment, county tax, and state revenue sharing.
my taxes (2016): 1685
Total tax value base (2016): 133979150
The 2016 allocations were sourced from town meeting minutes. 2017 allocations are based on the proposed budget as put forth by the Budget Committee. 2016 numbers for RSU #3 commitments and county taxes were confirmed with Kari Hunt. The school commitment amount is carried over to 2017 because I have no better guess as to what this value will turn out to be. The estimated county tax for 2017 is 4% higher than in 2016, based on conversations with Penny Picard Sampson. I've made every effort to double- and triple-check these numbers, but I can't claim to have an accounting background, so if any errors have crept in, I take responsibility and will correct them as soon as I'm made aware of them.
I'm estimating the tax rate by the following formula: (taxes raised + school commitment + county tax)/(total tax base 2016).
