Hi Wayne

Chatham has the lowest tax rate...$4.45 followed by Dennis at $5.88 and Orlaeans at $5.91.

At the other end of the spectrum are Sandwich at $12.74 and Bourne at $9.12 per thousand.

Hope this is a help!

As Sunny Fellman has said below...we do have very special lovely properties in Chatham that are occupied only seasonally. To find out more about Chatham and especially about golf on Cape Cod, please visit my website http://www.ChathamByTheSeaWithEvelyn.com .

Hi Wayne,

The answer below is correct, Chatham has the lowest tax rate which is $4.45. Part of the reason for this is because Chatham also has some of the highest valued property on the Cape with many waterfront and water view properties, and has a lower year round population requiring less use of town services.

Chatham is a wonderful town with so much to offer; in addition to having the lowest tax rate! I am a full time Realtor assisting Buyers and Sellers in Chatham and the surrounding towns of Harwich, Brewster, and Orleans.
