Board of Assessment Review


Stop in and see the Assessor first! If you still think your assessment is excessive, follow directions on form RP-524.

Purpose of the Board

The Board Members' role is to hear grievances from property owners contesting their assessed property value as determined by the Town Assessor. The property owner is encouraged to meet with the assessor first to see if an agreement can be reached.  If not, the second step in the process is for the owner or their representative to go before the town’s Board of Assessment Review (BAR). The BAR will review the required paperwork filed by the applicant, ask questions of the applicant if present, and make a decision as to whether or not the assessment will be changed, and if so, what the assessed value will be. Copies of the decisions are filed with the applicant, the Assessor and the BAR clerk. Appeals of BAR decisions by the applicant are made through the Small Claims Court.
