Find out what your property is assessed for

At their meeting on Tuesday night, selectmen will vote on the property tax rate for FY2010. The tax rate is one half of the equation that determines how much you pay in property taxes each year. The other half of the equation is your home’s valuation.

The Assessors Office recently completed the proposed property valuations for fiscal year 2010. Valuations are based on an analysis of sales and market conditions in calendar year 2008, and reflect your property’s value as of January 1, 2009.

The sluggish market conditions we’ve seen in calendar year 2009 won’t be reflected in your property valuation until next year (fiscal year 2011).

You can find out what your property was assessed for by looking at the FY2010 assessments (pdf). Compare the valuation to last year by looking at the FY2009 assessments (pdf).

If you think your property is overvalued or disproportionately assessed in comparison to other properties, you can file an abatement. You’ll find more information and the necessary forms on the Town Assessors’ website. The filing deadline is February 1, 2010.
