The Town of Farmington has completed the 2017 Revaluation, in conjunction with Tyler Technologies.
All properties have been reviewed for accuracy in value. Photos have been taken and are now a part of each property card. Values as of October 1, 2017 have been placed on each property located in Farmington. Every property owner has received a notice of assessment change indicating the previous assessment which was based on the fair market value from the previous revaluation of 2012, and the new assessment, updated to 10/1/17. Informal Hearings were held in January, and a final review of the entire town was conducted again. A second notice went out to all that attended an Informal Hearing.
The next step is the Board of Assessment Appeals. Once the final assessment has been placed, if a taxpayer disagrees with that value, they may request a hearing with the Board of Assessment Appeals (B.A.A.) by filing an appeal in writing no later than March 20, 2018. Hearings will be scheduled in April, 2018; time, location and date TBA. Once your appeal has been heard, the Board will make a decision and notify the taxpayer in writing. If the decision is not agreeable to the taxpayer, an appeal may be filed with the Superior Court.
The mill rate should be set within the next month, after the budget process has been completed, and a tax bill will be generated in July 2018 reflecting the 2017 updated value.
If you have any questions or concerns about this process, please feel free to contact the Assessor’s Office.
