What if I disagree with the assessment of my property?

The Board of Assessment Appeals which is comprised of 3 private citizens meet twice a year to hear appeals for those disputing their assessments. The September meeting is usually held on a Saturday and is exclusively for motor vehicles only. The March meetings are determined annually by the number of individuals that wish to appeal and are open for any type of property appeal, real estate, motor vehicle and personal property. For the March meetings, pursuant to Connecticut General Statutes, applications to meet before the Board must be filed with the Town Assessor no later than February 20th. Failure to comply with this requirement constitutes a waiver to meet with the Board for that year.
