PRESS RELEASE.. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

2013 REVALUATION

 

The Town of Watertown has contracted with Vision Appraisal Technology to complete a Town wide revaluation for Grand List 2013.  Vision Appraisal will be working with the Assessor’s office to make the project a successful one.  The last revaluation was completed in 2008 and current state laws require towns to revalue every five years.  A revaluation will determine the current fair market value of every property in town.  It equalizes the values of all properties for the purpose of a fair distribution of the tax burden.

 

The major phases to a municipal revaluation are: Data Collection, Market Analysis, Valuation, Field Review and Informal Hearings.  During the month of February,  Vision Appraisal will be sending data mailers to all property owners. They will contain information specific to each property. It is very important that taxpayers take the time to review and verify the information on these forms to ensure the accuracy of their resulting assessment. All data mailers must be returned to the Assessor’s Office whether or not corrections are made. Detailed instructions will be on the form.

 

Please note that Grand List 2012 has just been completed.  The 2012 assessments will be used to determine your July 2013 tax bill.  The 2013 revalued assessments, once completed, will be used to determine your 2014 taxes.

 

If you have any questions about the revaluation process or need additional information please contact the Assessor’s office at (860) 945-5235.  We are also available by email at reval@Watertownct.org.
