The Board of Assessment Appeals considers appeals for real estate, business personal property and motor vehicles in the month of March. According to Connecticut State Statute §12-111, for an appeal to be considered, a written application must be submitted to the Assessors on or before February 20th (postmarks are NOT accepted). Whenever February 20th falls on a weekend or holiday the due date is the previous business day. However, the Board of Assessment Appeals may decide not to hear an appeal "...for any commercial, industrial, utility or apartment property with an assessed value greater than $1,000,000". Once all the applications are submitted, the owner (or appointed agent) will be notified of the date and time of the hearing.
Real Estate Appeals: Please remember all real estate assessments are as of the last revaluation date – October 1, 2013. Any sales/appraisal information dated after the revaluation date will not be considered.
Business Personal Property Appeals: Please remember to bring a completed declaration of Personal Property to be submitted to the Board.
Motor Vehicle Appeals: Please bring your vehicle with you. Also be sure to bring any other pertinent information to show the Board, such as salvaged/rebuilt titles or odometer disclosure statements.
The Board of Assessment Appeals also meets one day in September for motor vehicle appeals only. The September appeals are on a first come first serve basis so there is no application due date. Just appear at the scheduled date and time. Please call in August to find out the date of the September meeting.
