The ups and downs of taxes, Westborough edition

WESTBOROUGH

Taxes on the average single-family home will increase by about $37 next year based on the town’s new tax rate and house values.

The Board of Selectmen last week voted to set a single tax rate for both commercial and residential property and accepted the Board of Assessors new tax rate of $13.66 for every $1,000 of value, Chief Assessor Linda Swadel said. The new rate will be in effect when tax bills go out in January.

The change increases to $6197.54 the yearly tax bill for the average single family home in town, Swadel said.
