Starting on September 28, 2023, the Assessor's Office will be conducting cyclical inspections as required by the Department of Revenue. The cyclical inspection program requires us to visit every property at least once every ten years - please note that other visits may occur during this time period due to issuance of building permits.

The cyclical inspections will be performed by appraisers employed by the PK Valuation Group on behalf of the Eastham Assessor's Office. The appraiser, Tim Kinski, is expected to be in town for the next several months. He will have a picture ID and his information is on file with the Eastham Police Department. The appraiser's vehicle is a red 2018 Hyundai Elantra with a Massachusetts plate #3DVP31. The maps covered will be maps 7, 7A, 8 and 9. 

We appreciate your assistance and cooperation during the inspection of your property. If you have any questions, please contact us at 774-801-3215. 

The Assessing Department is responsible for determining the amount of taxes assessed and levied on a variety of things.

Our office staff are here to help you with any questions regarding real estate and personal property assessments, exemptions and abatements, motor vehicle excise, and boat excise. 

In Massachusetts, governmental entities operate on a fiscal year basis. The fiscal year begins on July 1 and ends on the following June 30. Property taxes for the fiscal year are assessed as of the January 1 before the year begins.

Taxes assessed for the fiscal year are a single liability or legal obligation, even though they are payable in two installments over the course of the fiscal year.
