FY2017 TAX RATE = $15.23
NOTICE OF VALUATION INSPECTIONS:
The Assessor’s office is required by the Department of Revenue to verify the property data used to meet our statutory mandate of fair and equitable taxation as part of the ongoing revaluation program.
Over the next several weeks a representative of our office will be conducting on-site inspections of properties on the following roads:
Birches, Cross, Flagg, Gardner, Hale, Kruse, Mayo, Mile, Morgan, Mt Jefferson, New Templeton, Pitcherville, Ragged Hill, Rollingwoods, Root, South Cove, Thompson, Underwood and Williamsville.
Not all properties on these roads will be inspected, all properties in this cycle of inspections should have received a letter and a questionnaire that needs to be returned to the office. Thank you for your cooperation.
All Real Estate Abatement Applications must be received by the Assessors Office or postmarked by the February 1 filing deadline. This deadline cannot be extended or waived by the Assessors for any reason.
Filing an application does not stay the collection of your taxes. You are still responsible for paying your Real Estate Tax Bills by the due date. To avoid any loss of rights or additional charges, you should pay the tax as assessed. If an abatement is granted you will receive a refund of any overpayment.
Please be patient, the 2017 assessed valuations have not been updated on the map site yet. If you need your current valuation, call or email the assessor's office. Reports of current valuations are also available at the office during business hours.
The ballot question to "cease assessing the excise on certain animals, machinery and equipment owned by individual and non-corporate entities principally engaged in agriculture” passed on June 10th, 2014.
The assessor’s office is trying to be proactive on this ballot question and with the proper classification of these properties. If you have a property that has been classified as a farm please notify the Assessor’s office.”
