Personal Property assessment appeals for the 2021 Grand List will be held in March 2022.  Appeals for prior Grand Lists may only be heard in March 2023 if the assessments were changed retroactively, such as through a personal property audit.  The application needed to file an appeal is available at the link on the bottom of this page.


Assessments are currently based on the full market value of the property as of the revaluation date of October 1, 2021. Market value changes will not effect assessments until the next general revaluation, currently scheduled for 2026. The next appeal hearings will be for the October 1, 2021 grand list and will be held beginning in March 2023. Appeals may be made by filing an application by February 20, 2023 at the  Office of Assessment & Collection. An appointment will be scheduled for a hearing during the month of March.
