According to the Boston Business Journal, Wrentham stacks up pretty well against some of its neighbors in terms of commercial industrial tax rates, at least in some areas, and is the seventh most expensive town among Sharon, Mansfield, Norfolk, Norton, Franklin, Easton, Plainville, Norwood, Brockton and Foxborough
The argument during the vote’s deliberation between selectmen boiled down to tax revenue and who should take the higher increase in the tax split (in which the tax rate between commercial/industrial property and resident property are different).
Across the stae, Chilmark on Martha’s Vineyard has the lowest residential property tax rate in the state at 2.08 flat rate between commercial/industrial. Sharon has the highest residential tax rate (also with a flat split) in Massachusetts at 20.11 percent.
Everett had the highest commercial/industrial tax rate at 41.66 percent, and Chilmark also had the lowest rate in commercial/industrial at 2.08 percent.
