About

The April 2021 meeting of the Board of Assessment Appeals has been cancelled due to a lack of agenda items.  See the notice under Resources to the right.

NEW:  The filing period for the 2020 Grand List was extended until Feb. 14, 2021.  Increase notices have been sent to owners of personal property.  The deadline for the receipt of an appeal with the Board of Assessment Appeals is extended to Thursday, March 18, 2021.  Hearings will be held in early April. 

Assessments that can be appealed are those for real estate, personal property and motor vehicles on the 2020 Grand List and the 2019 Motor Vehicle Supplemental List.
_______________________________________________________
Assessment Appeals:   People sometimes disagree with the valuation the tax assessor places on their property, which determines the taxes they will pay. If that happens, your first step is to discuss it in person with the tax assessor. You can make an appointment by email or phone.

If the discussion fails to settle the dispute, use the assessment appeal form on this page to bring it to the Board of Assessment Appeals. There is no fee for this appeal. A hearing will be scheduled to discuss the matter and the appellant will be notified by mail. The board has the authority to overturn decisions made by the assessor and to establish a new valuation if it sees fit.  It does not have the authority to remove penalties for late filing or non-filing.  If the landowner does not accept the board's decision, he or she has 2 months to appeal the decision to Superior Court.

Hearings for real estate appeals are conducted by appointment only during the month of March (or April, if an extension is granted). Applications are available online or can be requested from the Assessors Office and must be filed in its entirety by February 20 (or March 20, if an extension has been granted.)

Hearings for motor vehicle appeals are conducted during the month of September.
