$13.49 per $1000 of assessed value.

In MA, assessed values are required to be at market value and tax rates are set annually. After decreasing in '06 & '07, our tax rate has increased 42% since then. However, due to lower assessed values, my actual tax bill has increased only 17% in that same timeframe.
