Tax commitment complete


The value of your property is one of the key variables in determining your tax bill, the other being the tax rate. The tax rate will not be finalized until the end of August, as there are a number of factors still in motion. However, based on the information we have now the tax rate will be decreasing between 12% and 14%. Your final tax bill is determined by multiplying your property’s value by the tax rate. While residential property values have increased, the decrease in the
tax rate means that your property tax bill will not increase by the same percentage as your value.


WebGIS

The Town's WebGIS online mapping application provides the public with a host of geographic data, including road centerlines, property lot lines, zoning, utilities, floodplains, water features, contours, and much more.

Tax cards will not be available on the GIS site until the completion of our Residential Revaluation. Please visit or contact our office if you need a copy of the tax card.

Property details can be found on the new GIS site, but the assessments may not be from the current fiscal year. Please refer to the Scarborough Self Service web site for FY 2018-2019 assessments.
