  • Chair nomination

    • Richard moves to nominate Vivian Mason as the Board of Assessors Chairperson. Vivian Seconds. 2-0-0 Motion Passes.

  • Abatements

    • Due to technological difficulties, abatement certificates could not be presented. Will be shared at the next meeting.

  • Assessing Questions

    • Vivian asked: the Course 101 Assessor Training says that properties and vehicles are only allowed one exemption, have we been doing this incorrectly? The terminology of the course is confusing.

      • No, statutory exemptions are reductions in property and excise tax based on some state approved reason, such as being a disabled veteran, or blind. Exemptions can only be applied to one residence (their domicile) as well as one vehicle, multiple exemptions cannot be added. However, multiple abatements may be applied for and granted, like a person who sold two cars at the same time is eligible for two abatements if they’ve already paid their excise tax. Chris will reach out to the DOR and see if they can make the language more understandable.

  • Bills Payable:

    • Richard moves to pay the MAAO and Berkshire Assessor Association membership fees in the total of $185.00. Vivan seconds. 2-0-0 Motion Passes.

BOARD OF ASSESSORS MINUTES / May 5, 2020 at 9:30am (no meeting in April)

Assessor’s Office, Hinsdale Town Hall, 39 South St., Hinsdale, MA 

posted 2:55pm on 6/2/2020

A meeting of the Board of Assessors took place on May 5, 2020 via Zoom Meeting and was called to order at approximately 9:30 a.m.   Present were Chairman Peter Persoff and Assessors Neil Barrocas and Dick Roussin.  Assistant Assessor David Zagorski also present.

Peter made a motion to approve the minutes of March 18, 2020 as written. Neil seconded. Vote unanimous.

Neil made a motion to approve bill schedule of $525 for CAI Technologies. Peter seconded. Vote unanimous.

Peter made a motion to approve motor vehicle excise abatements and monthly lists for May, 2020 for the following levies:
• Levy 2018, totaling $104.17
• Levy 2020, totaling $1,445.76
Dick seconded. Vote unanimous.

Peter made a motion to approve real estate exemptions and monthly list for May totaling $900.00. Neil seconded. Vote unanimous.

NStar Electric received a personal property bill in error for FY2020.  NStar had filed a Form of List for the solar project on New Windsor Rd which was already being billed via PILOT agreement to Windsor Road Energy Development Inc. David erroneously generated a tax bill for NStar based on the FOL as it was not specified that the equipment listed was for the solar project. Once discovered, NStar requested the matter be corrected, and David agreed the bill should be abated in full.  Peter made a motion to approve the abatement for NStar in the amount of $48,672.76. Neil seconded. Vote unanimous. As the abatement is larger than the overlay approved for FY2020, the difference will need to be taken from the excess overlay reserve.

As the office is closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the board discussed having the office calls forwarded to David’s cell phone so that they can be dealt with in a timely fashion.  David will set the call forwarding to his phone.

There was discussion about purchasing an external camera for the office computer as David was unable to video Zoom for the meeting and was only able to use the audio portion.

The next meeting will be Tuesday, June 2, 2020 at 9:30 a.m.

Meeting adjourned at 10:13 a.m.
