Revaluation notices for residential properties were mailed on Friday, December 14, 2012, to the record property owners, as of October 1, 2012. If you took ownership after this date you may review the new assessment values from our website, www.farmington-ct.org.
INFORMAL HEARINGS: Tyler Technologies, the revaluation firm that worked with the Assessor on the 2012 residential property revaluation, will make appraisal personnel available for the purpose of reviewing property values, beginning on December 19, 2012. Reviews will be scheduled by appointment only. The appraisers will discuss market values only. They will not be able to discuss tax rates or estimated tax bills. A change in value will be considered if the owner can demonstrate that the appraised value is in excess of market value. A request for review must be made by December 27, 2012.
Appointments may be made with Tyler by calling toll free phone number 1-888-773-7059 Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
Based on the Town’s experience with previous revaluations, the mill rate will CHANGE; therefore, DO NOT multiply the new assessment by the current mill rate.
BOARD OF ASSESSMENT APPEALS: If a property owner is not satisfied with the results of the informal review, they may appeal to the Board of Assessment Appeals by requesting a hearing in writing no later than March 20, 2013. Appeal forms are available on our website.
