How much will the proposed override increase my taxes?

We have developed a Tax Impact Calculator that residents can use to enter their street address and view the estimated FY24 property tax increase resulting from the proposed override. 

Without the override, the median Hingham taxpayer, whose property is currently assessed at $898,850, would have an estimated FY24 tax bill of $9,634.  With the override, the median taxpayer's FY24 estimated tax bill would increase by approximately $751 to $10,385.
