How often are properties reassessed?

State law requires all properties to be assessed at market value as of January 1 each year. This does not mean that every property is physically inspected each year. Properties in the Town are required to be physically re-inspected at least every ten years. The purpose of this cyclical re-inspection is to ensure that the assessing department maintains an accurate and up-to-date description of all taxable property in Town, and to capture any unreported structures that may have been added since our last visit.
