There is a 60-day period following the mailing date of property assessments to allow property owners a chance to review and ensure the accuracy of their Assessment Notice. The following are steps a property owner should take when reviewing their assessment notice.
The first step is to review property information to make sure the description is accurate.
Consider the following things:
- Is the assessment a reasonable estimate of market value as of the valuation date? Talk with an Assessor who can estimate the property’s comparative value in the current market.
- Is the assessment equitable when compared with others in the area? Comparative values are available on the Town’s assessment roll search tool on Virtual Town Hall.
- Are there any problems that might affect the property’s value?
