Chelmsford Business Association ...
The Chelmsford Business Association is a group of nearly 300 member businesses that operate in the Town of Chelmsford. The organization of the Association includes officers and a Board of Directors. It was established in 1990 by a group of business people who were concerned with the many issues of owning and operating a business in the town of Chelmsford.
They saw the importance of having a strong representation and a good working relationship with the town officials. Tax classification was always a major focus of our association. Over the life of the association, the board has worked diligently with town officials to reduce the differential between business and residential tax, eventually eliminating a split rate in 1998.
In December of 2019, the Board of Selectmen voted 3-2 to restore a split rate to 27% against commercial property owners. The Association will continue to work with town officials towards reducing that split and with the intention to one day return the town to parity, creating a fair and equitable community for all.
