WORCESTER’S FISCAL 2013 REAL ESTATE TAX RATE
Residential: $18.58 *
Commercial: $30.85 *
*Per thousand of value
Many businesses have closed or left Worcester. Many more are looking to follow. Businesses, like residents, are having to make some crucial decisions for their survival in these economic times. In the case of businesses, the affects on the community are often hard felt whether it be loss of jobs, loss of revenue to the City, or losing much needed support of the many non-profits that add value to the City of Worcester.
Lack of good paying jobs across the country have been a pivotol issue at the heart of foreclosures, something no family should ever have to face.
Businesses won't expand and hire unless they are comfortable with what's going on around them economically. While we can't control all the challenges businesses are dealing with today, we believe that creating a favorable business environment here in Worcester is key to keeping businesses here, inspiring them to expand and hire and makes Worcester a desirable location for new businesses that will contribute to our tax base.
