Real Estate

Assessed values are based on ‘fair market value’.  This is done by analyzing sales that have occurred in the area annually.

All cities and towns are required by the Department of Revenue to undergo a revaluation certification every three years.  In the interim years, values are updated depending on market values.

Each parcel is required to be inspected at least once every nine years.

Inspections are done when a building permit has been issued; the property has been sold; or the property is part of the cyclical program.

An abatement application must be filed with the Board of Assessors on or before the due date of the actual bill for the fiscal year. Actual bills are those issued after values have been approved and the tax rate has been set.  The due date is typically February 1.

Are exemptions available?

Exemptions are available for certain qualifying persons, such as blind, elderly, surviving spouses, disabled veterans.
