2021 Town-wide Revaluation of Real Property

The October 1, 2016 revaluation has been implemented and the Assessment Division is looking towards the October 1, 2021 reval which will be a full list and measure project.  With an eye towards cost reduction in 2021, the division will be implementing a data mailer program which will reduce the number of properties needing a full measure and list.  This policy is supported by State statute and has been adopted in other Connecticut municipalities to reduce the costs of the full revaluation.  

Over the next 5 years all real estate owners will receive a data mailer with current property information for their review.  Taxpayers are asked to return the form whether or not there are inaccuracies; however be sure to note any inaccuracies. Staff will schedule an on-site visit to any property that does not return the data mailer.  While this process will involve continual field data verification by staff over the next 5 years it is anticipated that the end result will be a reduction in the cost of the 2021 reval as some of the work will have already been completed in-house by Assessment staff. 

A 5 year schedule by neighborhood has been created and the first data mailers will be mailed during the second week of July to the following neighborhoods:

  • Eastern Point
  • Poquonnock Bridge (south of I95)
  • Noank (not village)
  • Old Mystic

Assessment recognizes the data mailers may generate questions and phones calls from taxpayers since the 10-1-2016 revaluation was just completed and are fully prepared to explain this new project and the expected results it will produce.

Property owners can contact the Assessor’s Office at 860-441-6660 for any questions regarding this program.
