Kara J. Fishman, CCMA II, MAI – Assessor
The primary responsibility of the Assessor’s office is to discover, list and value all property in its jurisdiction. The Grand List is generated each year as of October 1 and is a record of all taxable and tax exempt property. The net taxable Grand List property includes real estate, motor vehicles, personal property owned by businesses and certain personal property owned by residents (such as unregistered motor vehicles).
All property is assessed at 70% of its October 1 value. Motor vehicles and personal property are assessed at 70% of market value each year. Real Estate is revalued every five years as required by Connecticut State Statute. The Assessor’s office also administers property tax exemptions and tax relief programs. Please contact the Assessor’s office for additional information.
2021 is a revaluation year for the Town of Ashford. CT General State Statute 12-62 requires the revaluation of all real estate in town every five years. The last revaluation in Ashford was for the 10/1/2016 Grand List. The town has contracted with eQuality Valuation Services LLC, out of Waterbury, CT. eQuality is the software supplier for the town’s real estate database. Property cards are currently available at the website https://www.propertyrecordcards.com/SearchMaster.aspx?towncode=003.
Updated information will be available when the revaluation starts. All real estate owners will receive a data mailer in the mail in February or March 2021 that lists the characteristics of your property. You will be asked to make any corrections to the information and return the data mailer. Your responses to these mailers take on additional importance this year since interior inspections may be limited due to Covid-19 restrictions.
