The Town of Farmington, in conjunction with Tyler Technologies, has completed the State-Mandated revaluation effective October 1, 2017. The purpose of a revaluation is to maintain equity throughout the town.  Since fair market value is affected by a number of factors including location, desirability and   supply and demand, all properties are reviewed for accuracy in value.

Our ultimate goal is to establish fair market value of every property as of the assessment date, which is October 1, 2017.  Once the market values have been determined, the assessment is calculated at 70% of market value. 

Notices of assessment change are being mailed on December 29, 2017 to every taxpayer owning property in the town of Farmington.  The notice will indicate the 2016 and 2017 assessments.  Please be aware that the 2016 assessment is based on the market value as of October 1, 2012 which was the date of the last revaluation.  The 2016 assessment may also include any updates or changes made to the property since 2012.

Property Cards based on the 2017 Grand List may be reviewed on the Town of Farmington’s Website.  I urge everyone to review their property for accuracy.   Please click on “Assessor Property Search” found on the Town’s main page. This will bring you to the LAND RECORD SEARCH page.  At the bottom of the page, please click on “Assessment Land Record Search Utility” to search an address.

Tyler Technologies will be holding informal hearings by appointment only  during the month of January, 2018.  All requests for a hearing must be made by January 17, 2018 by calling:

Tyler Technologies  Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. at 860-675-2348.

If you have any questions or concerns about this process, please feel free to contact the Assessor’s Office.

Thank you for your cooperation in this project.
