My property tax bill was pretty reasonable, this year. Hey, I’m not complaining.
Others, however, weren’t quite as pleased.
By Feb. 1, the deadline for asking for tax reductions, homeowners had filed 3,323 applications for abatements on their fiscal 2007 property tax bills, which were mailed out in early November, the city said. That’s nearly triple the 1,203 applications filed a year ago.
The average Boston residential tax bill rose $338, or 12 percent, to $3,091 for a single-family home, and by $308, or 11 percent, to $3,072, for a condo.
Of course, your actual tax due was probably less by $1,000 or so, due to the residential exemption.
Average property tax bills have risen for at least the last five years, consecutively, according to the Globe.
