Massachusetts

In Massachusetts property is assessed for local tax purposes at its full and fair cash value as of January first of each year.  Every three years, a community's assessments must be reviewed by the Commissioner of Revenue and certified as meeting legal standards.  Adjustments to assessments made in the years between this triennial certification to reflect changes in market conditions must also meet legal standards, although they are not subject to annual review by the Commissioner.

Resources about assessment may be available at the Massachusetts Association of Assessing Officers site here
 

Some areas are available through Vision Appraisal Technologies, with registration. You can also search real estate sales records in Massachusetts from 1994-present here. Many municipalities link through Patriot Properties; many counties are available through the Commonwealth’s Registry of Deeds here
