Please call for an appointment and submit the following application to the Town Assessor with proof of why you feel your assessment is incorrect. The burdon of proof is on the homeowner. You must submit a recent appraisal or a list of comparable homes that have recently sold in the area. The assessor's office has a recent sales book available for the public to view.
