Real Estate / Personal Property Review and Appeal Procedure
If you feel your assessment is incorrect, you may request in writing prior to October 1st that the Assessor review your property.
Board of Assessment Appeals
If you are not satisfied with the review you may choose to go directly to the Board of Assessment Appeals to appeal your assessment. The Board of Appeals meets three times during the month of March to hear appeals on the Grand List filed with the Town Clerk by the Assessor on January 31st. An application must be filed no later than February 20th with the Board. Call the Assessor’s office at 860-665-8530 for more information.
If you are not satisfied with the determination of the Board of Assessment Appeals, you may appeal their action to Superior Court. This must be done within two months of the action of the Board. If you choose to appeal your assessment to Superior Court directly without recourse to the Board of Assessment Appeals, you must appeal to the Superior Court within one year from the date the property was last assessed.
