The Assessors Office is committed to maintaining an assessment system that can develop fair and equitable values for all classes of property. This department is charged with establishing market based assessments for real estate parcels and personal property accounts. This is accomplished through the work of three part time Board members, an Assistant Assessor and a clerical position.
The Assessors Office is available to answer a wide variety of questions and issues: ranging from abatements to exemptions; from property identification to motor vehicle excise tax issues. We have provided a list of frequently asked questions (FAQ's) in order to provide online answers to some of the questions that are asked of our office. Additionally, we have provided forms to save you time. Please contact us if you should have further questions.
The Board of Assessors is an elected position. During each Town election, one member is elected to a three year term.
