Property tax bills to increase for Agawam residents

Commercial buildings owners will $109 increase

AGAWAM, Mass. (WWLP) – In Fiscal 2015, Agawam homeowners will see their annual property tax bill increase by about $40. The Agawam City Council approved the mayor’s plan to raise the residential property tax rate by 19 cents per one-thousand dollar valuation.

Commercial buildings owners will see their annual property tax bill increase by about $109, but even with the increase, Agawam continues to have one of the lowest split tax rates in Hampden County.

Michelle Manning of Agawam said, “Our taxes in our town I feel like have been pretty reasonable over the last few years. I grew up here and I really like the town, so I’m happy to stay here even with the little tax increase.”

The value of an average single-family house in Agawam is $209,100. An average value of a commercial building is $303,100.
