Assessor’s Office

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.
