Assessor's Office

Purpose:

The Assessor's Office provides the Town with fiscal stability by ensuring that the Town's personal and real property is promptly, fairly and equitably valued and classified.  The assessors determine the fair market value of all property for the purposes of taxation.

Responsibilities:

  • Taxing real estate, motor vehicles, and boats.
  • Preparing annual recapitulation (recap), which compiles tax and financial data for the purpose of setting the tax rate for each fiscal year.
  • Processing applications for abatements, for those homeowners who believe that their property was over-valued for tax purposes.
  • Administering the statutory exemption program for eligible taxpayers, including the elderly, blind, widows, and veterans.
