Residential tax bills going up


Property tax bills are going out by the end of the year, and the average homeowner will see about a $300 annual increase, according to local officials. The increase is the result of selectmen’s decision to change the balance between residential and commercial property taxpayers by about 1.5 percent. Although residential property owners will pay a larger share of the total tax burden, businesses will still pay the majority of the total revenue, according to the assessor’s office. About 65 percent of the roughly $17 million collected comes from commercial and industrial property taxes, officials said.
