If you feel that your property assessment is incorrect, there is a process to follow to rectify it:

  1. Talk to the Assessor – If you feel there is a discrepancy with the assessed value of your property please contact the Fair Market Assessment at 468-9698 to speak with the assessor.
  2. Go to Open Book – Open Book is the second step in the assessment appeals process.  Here, the property owners have an opportunity to compare their assessed value with similar (like) properties within the town. The assessor is available to speak directly with you in attempts to clarify the reasoning behind the value placed on your property.
  3. Schedule a review hearing at the Board of Review – After speaking with the assessor and looking at property comparables within the Town you feel your assessment isn’t correct, the Board of Review is the next step.  The Board of Review is a quasi-judicial (court-like) body empowered with three primary duties:
  • Adjust assessments within iproven incorrect by sworn oral testimony
  • Correct error or omissions in the descriptions or computations found on the assessment roll
  • Check the assessment roll for omitted properties or double assessments.
