Welcome

Welcome to the Town of Columbia, Connecticut, Office of Assessment.

“The change/impact notices have gone out. If you have not received one please contact the Assessor’s Office immediately.”

This database provides you with information on each parcel of real estate in Columbia.

Columbia is performing a revaluation for the Grand List of October 1, 2016.  This revaluation will impact the tax bills due beginning in July 2017.  The Town of Columbia and Vision Government Solutions are working on this revaluation at this time, and Vision Government Solutions sent out the first notices of the 2016 revaluation assessments on November 17, 2016, and the 2016 revaluation values were placed in the online database at that time.

Do not apply the current tax (mill) rate to your new assessment as the mill rate will change, and using the prior mill rate will not correctly calculate your July 2017 tax bill.  The new mill rate will be determined in the Spring of 2017. 

If you are a Columbia property owner, and you do not have your 2016 revaluation assessment notice, you may look up the new assessment for your property using this online database. 

In conjunction with the 2016 revaluation assessment notices, you may review your new assessment with a representative of Vision Government Solutions by scheduling an informal hearing.  Informal hearings will be held at the Columbia Town Hall, 323 John Trumbull Highway, Columbia, by appointment only.   The informal hearings will begin in November, and will extend into December. 

To schedule an informal hearing, you may go to
www.vgsi.com/schedules and follow the instructions to schedule an informal hearing.  You will need the Parcel ID number (PID#), which can be found at the top of the 2016 revaluation assessment notice, or on the online database.  If you wish to schedule an informal hearing for two or more properties, please do not schedule your hearings online, and please call Vision Government Solutions toll free at 1-888-844-4300.   If you do not have access to a computer, or prefer to call for an appointment time, instead of scheduling your informal hearing online, you may call 1-888-844-4300 between the hours of 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday, excluding state holidays.  The last day to schedule an appointment is December 12, 2016.

Please DO NOT contact the Town of Columbia Office of Assessment to schedule your informal hearing with Vision Government Solutions.  The Town’s staff does not have access to create, change, or cancel hearing appointments.
