Tax Assessor

The responsibilities of the Assessor’s Office include maintaining various data on over 10,000 individual properties located in the Town. This information includes, ownership, mailing address, location, year built, land sizes, and all characteristics of the structure. The Assessor’s Office adjusts assessments accordingly, due to changes, such as demolitions, appeals, subdivisions, and improvements. The final valuation each year is the basis for the Town’s property tax levy. In addition, the Assessor, along with his staff, reviews all property transfers and updates these records accordingly.
