Windsor’s 2018 Revaluation Information
In accordance with State Law, Windsor has completed a revaluation of all property included on its Grand List as of October 1, 2018. The purpose of a revaluation is to determine the current fair market value of all properties.
For local property tax purposes, State Law requires that municipalities assess all property at 70% of its current fair market value. Therefore, the assessed value of your property has been revised to reflect 70% of the newly established fair market value. Please note that the new assessment, not the market value is the basis on which your July 2019 tax bill will be computed.
You may review your new assessment data by entering your address in the Reval Lookup below.
If you believe the value indicated for your property is in excess of fair market value, the first step is to contact the Assessor’s Office to schedule an informal hearing.
To schedule an appointment please call (860) 285-1458 or (860) 285-1459. Please have your notice available when calling for an appointment as you will need to provide the Parcel ID and the property address.
Appointments will be taken from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM weekdays through December 14th, 2018.
Hearings, which will be by appointment only, will be held in the Ludlow Room on the lower level of the Windsor Town Hall from December 3rd, 2018 to December 28th, 2018. A representative from the Assessor’s Office will review your property valuation with you. This is the proper time and place to correct any clerical errors. This would also be the time to present evidence supporting what you believe is the fair market value, such as comparable properties in your area. The results of your hearing will be mailed to you in early January 2019.
If you are still not satisfied that your valuation is fair, the next step is to meet with the Windsor Board of Assessment Appeals, which will hold hearings during the month of March. If you plan on meeting with the Board, you must file an application no later than February 20th, 2019. Once your application has been received, you will be notified as to the time, place and date of your hearing. Upon completion of your hearing, you will be sent a notice advising you of the results.
Finally, if after meeting with the Board of Assessment Appeals you are still not satisfied, you may make application to the Superior Court within 60 days from the date of notification.
