Even though the bills will go out April 1, town officials insist it is not a joke. This year’s average tax bill will actually decrease $31 from last year thanks in part to an unexpected state reimbursement.
The new tax rate is $10.96 for every $1,000 of value. The average tax bill is $5,444 on the average assessed home of $496,750, Assessor Diane Peterson said. Last year’s average tax bill was $5,475.
The town received $189,168 in unanticipated state reimbursement money for the construction of Berlin Memorial School, Peterson said.
