Board of Assessment Appeals

The Assessor's responsibility is to ensure that all property is fairly and equitably assessed. If you believe your assessment is inaccurate please contact the Assessor if you have not already done so and she will try to assist you prior to filing an appeal.

The Board of Assessment Appeals meeting has been rescheduled and will be held on May 27, 2020.  Please see Agenda link on this page for more details.  For a copy of appeal documents, please email

March/April Meetings: The BAA  will listen to appeals for Real Estate, Personal Property, and Motor Vehicle accounts which have not been billed; and Supplemental Motor Vehicle bills issued the preceding January.

A taxpayer must complete an application per C.G.S. ss12-111, on a form issued by the BAA.  This form must be submitted to the Assessor on or before the close of business on February 20th to be eligible to meet with the BAA in March, unless the Assessor and BAA have been granted an extension of time for completion of duties.  In the event an extension has been granted for one month, the appeal application deadline and the BAA meeting will be extended likewise. The application filing deadline is located on the application form and can be obtained in the Assessor's Office on February 1st or by downloading Instructions and Appeal Form on the left side or via Forms & Documents.

September Meetings:  The BAA will listen to appeals for Motor Vehicles only.  Taxpayers should appear with their vehicle and/or any evidence or documentation to support their claim.  Appeals are handled on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Anyone claiming to be aggrieved by the actions of the Assessor has the right to an appeal before the Board of Assessment Appeals
