Property Assessment Appeals

Applications and Hearings

The Hearings for the 2020 Grand List are complete.

Automobile owners, who wish to appeal the assessment on their vehicles, may appear at the September meeting of the Board of Assessment Appeals. The appeal form must be completely filled out with all the information requested.

Forms will be posted here when they are available.

The meeting will be held on Thursday, September 9th, 2021 from 5:00 to 7:00PM in the Gisborne Room, located on the first floor of Town Hall.  No appointment is necessary.

Since motor vehicles are revalued annually, a subsequent application to the BAA must be made each year that the owner is not in agreement with the assessed value.

Application Process:

  • Applications for appeals of Real Estate and Personal Property assessment shall be made each year to the Board of Assessment Appeals by February 20th, at 5PM unless an extension is granted in a revaluation year.
  • Applications can be found here or in the Assessor’s Office once they are published and until they expire.
  • Field Cards are available online from the Assessor's Office Web Page.
  • Applications must be filed with the BAA by the due date and time. No exceptions.
  • Hearings for Real Estate and Personal Property will be held in person, by appointment, in the month of March (unless an extension is granted in a revaluation year) and continue until all appeals are heard.
  • Hearings for Motor Vehicles are held in September on an evening scheduled each year by the Board. No appointment is needed.
  • All appeals must be done in person. A representative may appear on an owners behalf with a signed letter of authorization from the property owner. All application forms must be filled out completely in order to receive an appointment.
