The owner of an average $443,901 home in Berlin will see taxes go up $52 next year, according to the assessorís proposed new tax rate.

Assessor Diane Peterson will present a report to the Board of Selectmen Monday night that sets the new tax rate at $10.96 per $1,000 of assessed value. Last yearís tax rate was $11.78 per $1,000 of assessed value. That change means taxes on the average $443,901 home will jump to $4,865. Last year the average home was $408,609.
