Dalton's Single Tax Rate Drops, Bills Slightly Increase

By Brittany PolitoiBerkshires Staff
DALTON, Mass. — The town's tax rate is estimated to drop by about 11 percent but residents will see a slight increase in their tax bill due to rising property values.
 
The select board on Monday voted to set the fiscal year 2023 residential factor at 1 with a corresponding CIP shift of 1, resulting in an estimated single tax rate of $18.44 per thousand in valuation.
 
The tax rate is a $2.30 decrease from the previous fiscal year's rate of $20.74 per hundred thousand, but it does not mean that bills will decrease.
 
Residential property values have risen about 14 percent from FY22, bringing the average home from $235,381 to around $271,929.  With this, the average homeowner's annual tax bill will rise by around $114 dollars to about $4,995.
