BARKHAMSTED 2023 REVALUATION UPDATE                                                                  NOVEMBER 28, 2023

 Vision Government Solutions has updated the values for Barkhamsted’s 2023 Revaluation to reflect the current market. The change Notices were mailed on Monday, 11/27/2023.  

Please remember that a revaluation is a revenue neutral process.  The total amount of taxes that a town needs to collect is independent of the revaluation.  Your tax bill will not increase the same percentage as your assessment since the mill rate will be changing. The mill rate will be set in May after the town budget is approved. If the Grand List increases significantly and the budget change is minimal, the mill rate will most likely decrease. For more details about the Revaluation process, please read the documents posted on the Assessor’s page of the town website: www.Barkhamsted.US

Although the average assessment increase for residential real estate is 45%, there is variation from house-to-house since market desires change from one period of time to the next. In addition, if you have made any changes to your property in the past year, these changes may also have impacted your property’s valuation.
