Frequently Asked Questions:

What is a Cyclical Review? A Cyclical review is a systematic house by house, neighborhood by neighborhood review of each property to verify that the information listed on the Town’s assessment record matches the property.

How often will my property be reviewed? The review process is a revolving program and your property will be typically be viewed once every 4-5 years. In addition to the cyclical reviews, appraisers will review all sales, building permits, subdivisions, and boundary line adjustments.

Will this change my property value? Only if the information in the assessing record is found to be inaccurate. Such as: The property record card has no listing of a deck but the property does have a deck. Or, the property record card indicates the property has three baths but there are only two.
