Board of Assessors

Overview of the Board of Assessors

The Salem Board of Assessors play a major role in promoting the effective financial management for the City of Salem. They are responsible for the valuation of business personal property (800 +/- accounts) and approximately 14,000+ parcels of real property in accordance with Massachusetts General Laws and regulations of the Department of Revenue (DOR).

The city's property values must be reviewed and accepted by the DOR annually. By keeping values at market standard, the assessors assist in maximizing the resources available to fund municipal services.
