5/26/2023 Revaluation Update
Data Mailers are currently being sent to residential and condominium owners.
- The preferred option is to submit your data mailer online using the Identification Code. If submitting online, please do not mail back the paper copy.
- The Secondary option is to complete the reverse side of the form and where necessary, make any corrections by drawing a line through that item and either print or circle the correct information, then sign and date where indicated. Mail it back using the enclosed envelope. Please use colored ink
A response to this mailing, with or without changes, is required within 10 business days of the receipt of the letter. If there is no response to the letter, the information on file for this property will be used for valuation purposes*.
*The property may still require an interior inspection based on the changes noted on the back of the letter; when the property was last inspected; if this property was recently sold; if it has an open building permit; or by random selection for quality control purposes. eQuality will contact you if necessary.

Watertown is scheduled for a town-wide revaluation for the October 1, 2023, Grand List and has contracted with eQuality Valuation Services from Waterbury, CT to assist in the process. Data mailers will be sent to all residential and commercial properties which will list details such as the style of the house, room count, and special features. The participation of owners is critical in this phase of the process and we ask that you review the data, make any changes that may need to be addressed, and file the form online or return the completed form. Our goal is to ensure that the data is correct so accurate values can be applied to all properties.
At this time, there are individuals from the revaluation company, eQuality Valuation Services LLC, doing inspections for such things as callbacks, building permits issued through the Building Department, Data mailers, or properties listed for sale with discrepancies from the Assessor property cards.
Vehicle information for these individuals has been provided to the Police Department and The Assessor’s office. All inspectors will have an ID badge and letters from the Assessor confirming their identity. Feel free to contact the Assessor’s office if you have any questions or concerns.
