From the Boston Courant:

Residents in the downtown neighbrohoods who are largely escaped the nationwide slump in housing prices can thank a weak residential market eleswhere in the city for a tax break next year.

The recently certified assessments for fiscal year 2009 will result in a residential property tax reduction of $187 in the average single family home’s tax bill, down from $2,949 last year to $2,762 this year for taxpayers receiving the residential exemption.

The residential tax rate is expected to be $10.63 per $1,000 of valuation, down from $10.97 last year.
