The South Hadley Board of Assessors consists of a three-member independently elected board who serve three year terms. The Assessors Office staff provides support to the board.
The Board of Assessors must discover and list all property, maintaining accurate ownership and property information. The department establishes the "full and fair cash value" of each of the town's approximately 7,000 real estate parcels and approximately 600 business personal property accounts. The assessed valuations are the basis of the distribution of the town's annual property tax levy. The department also administers the motor vehicle and boat excise taxes.
The Board of Assessors works to deliver fair and equitable assessments on all real and personal property within the town.
