The Assessors have a state mandate to perform a reassessment for all properties in their district for the 2012 pay 2013 tax year. That process has already begun.
This involves someone in, or representing the Assessor’s office to acutally go out and physically inspect each property for changes, both residential and commercial.
For now this may affect you in a couple of ways:
1. You may see someone measuring and taking pictures of your property.
2. You may receive a survey in the mail requesting that you confirm certain characteristics about your property, or provide income information. Proceed cautiously when completing these forms. They can have a big impact on the future tax bill you may pay. Call us if you are in doubt about what to do.
More on the reassessment in the coming months.
