Weymouth Cost of Living & Taxes

The overall cost of living is quite high, roughly 30% above the national average, and is slightly higher than the state average for Massachusetts. This is primarily due to the extremely high cost of homes and housing, as well as the high transportation costs. Groceries and utilities are slightly above average, however health care costs are well below average.

Despite the high cost of living, Massachusetts is considered a moderately tax-friendly state for retirees. Social Security benefits and public pensions are exempt from income tax, however all other forms of retirement income are fully taxed. Property taxes are fairly average, but this can still be a significant financial burden due to the high cost of homes. There is a Circuit Breaker Credit to help provide some property tax relief for residents who qualify based on age and income. Sales tax is fairly low in the state however it does not apply to clothing or prescription medication.
