The Town Assessors Office, plans, directs, organizes and implements a continuing town-wide program of real and personal property assessment for the purpose of fair & equitable local taxation as prescribed by Connecticut General Statutes.
Annually conducts inspections for new, existing and under construction properties to determine their value. Administers state and local exemption programs for veterans, elderly, disabled, and blind taxpayers, farm buildings and special land classifications among others. Compiles the Grand List of both taxable and tax-exempt property assessments for real property, motor vehicles, and personal property.
Every five years the Assessor coordinates and oversees the town wide revaluation of all taxable and non-taxable property to reflect current market trends. Supervises all contracted appraisal work for said revaluation and superior court appeals.
The Assessor’s Office, like the rest of Town Hall, has re-opened for public-facing services, however many of our services are available online via the links found to the left, right and below.
Email continues to be a great way to reach our department (see link above right).
Be well, and stay safe.
