Search Assessment Database
In an effort to make our real estate information more accessible, the Board of Assessors has created this information database. All of the data found here was taken from our working database and is the same information found on the Assessors' Public Access workstation in our office. This information is the most up to date available and will be updated regularly to keep it as current as possible. We are interested in knowing how our searchable database worked for you. Please send us an email and let us know how the database is working.
Navigating the Database
The information found here is the actual bill for Fiscal Year 2016. The names and addresses are as of January 1, 2015. The Parcel ID contains the map and key numbers needed to order a municipal lien certificate from the Treasurer/Collector. The first number is 131 which is our town code, the next number is the map number, and the last number is the lot or key number. If the property is a condominium, the middle number is the unit number and must be given as part of the map and key.
Searching the Database
When you select the "Assessment Data" icon you will arrive at the Assessment Data page. Select the search database icon top right. From there, enter the data base, this will bring you to the property look up. Type in the name of the owner or the street address of the property you want to view - only 1 is required. It is better to be simple in your query. If you are unsure whether it is a street, road or avenue, leave it off. If you are unsure of the spelling, use the first 3 or 4 letters only. A list of properties will appear. Select the parcel ID of the property you want. This brings you to a summary screen.
To print the summary screen, you need to have Adobe® Acrobat® Reader®, which you can download for free from the Adobe® website. If Adobe® Acrobat® Reader® is already installed, select the print icon in the upper right-hand section of the screen. You can also select the property record icon in the upper right-hand section, you can also print the card. To look at another property, select the "Back" button which will bring you to the property look up page.
Zoning information included here is indicatory and should be corroborated. The Building Commissioner is authorized to make all zoning determinations in the Town of Hingham.
