The Town of Farmington,in conjunction with Tyler Technologies, completed their last Revaluation for the 2017 Grand List. The next Revaluation will take place for the 2022 Grand List.
All properties were reviewed for accuracy in value. Photos were taken and are a part of each property card. Values as of October 1, 2017 were placed on each property located in Farmington. Every property owner 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 2017 assessment. Informal Hearings were held in January, 2018, and a final review of the entire town was conducted again. A second notice went out to all that attended an Informal Hearing.
If a taxpayer disagrees with the value placed on their property, they may request a hearing with the Board of Assessment Appeals (B.A.A.) by filing an appeal in writing no later than February 20 of any given year. Hearings are scheduled in March. Once an 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.
If you have any questions or concerns about this process, please feel free to contact the Assessor’s Office.
