Important Notice:

Cyclical Property Inspections Beginning in July 2022

In accordance with Department of Revenue guidelines, the Assessors are required to inspect all properties at least once every ten years. 

The Hingham Board of Assessors’ office have contracted VISION Government Solutions to conduct the necessary CYCLICAL inspections throughout town as they prepare for Fiscal Year 2023 recertification by the MA Department of Revenue. Field personnel will produce proper identification, a verification letter from the Hingham Board of Assessors office, and will be registered with the Hingham Police Department for the duration of the project. Inspectors will inspect the interior and exterior of the property and verify that the data on the property record card is up to date and accurate.  The entire inspection will take just a few minutes.    

If the homeowner, or a person over 18 years of age, is not at home on the first call, a notice will be left asking the homeowner to schedule an inspection appointment.  If you would like to arrange an inspection appointment in advance, please feel free to contact our office at 

(781) 741-1455  or email assessors@hingham-ma.gov

Business Personal Property Inspections 

The Board of Assessors is also conducting annual inspections of new and existing business personal property. The inspections will be performed by an appraiser employed by Real Estate Research Consultants, Inc. (RRC), on behalf of the Hingham Board of Assessors. The appraiser will be listing new property and reviewing existing property as required by the MA Department of Revenue for Fiscal Year 2023.

The scope of this project includes interior inspection of certain personal property accounts in order to list all taxable personal property items such as inventory, furniture & fixtures, equipment, and machinery used in the conduct of business. All, personal property is listed and assessed in accordance with Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 59, Section 5.

The Board of Assessors and RRC will appreciate your cooperation in providing the representative with access to your property and the information necessary to undertake this assignment. Please keep in mind that if your business is not inspected, an estimate will be made, resulting in a less reliable assessment.

All RRC inspectors will produce proper identification, a verification letter from the Hingham Board of Assessors office, and will be registered with the Hingham Police Department for the duration of the project.

If you have any questions regarding these projects, please contact the Assessors’ Office at (781) 741-1455 or email assessors@hingham-ma.gov
