Board of Assessment Appeals

  • Kathleen S. Held
  • Chair
  • Laura M. DeCaprio
  • Michael O'Brien

The Board of Assessment Appeals is made up of three elected volunteers who serve four year overlapping terms. The Board meets in March and September to hear appeals on real estate, personal property and motor vehicle assessments.  Property owners have the opportunity to appeal assessments annually.

 The Board of Assessment Appeals determines whether adjustments on assessments under appeal are warranted.  The Board hears appeals on motor vehicle assessments in September, and hears appeals on business personal property, supplemental motor vehicles, and real estate assessments in March.  By law, appellants must submit a written application to the Board of Assessment Appeals on or before February 20th in order to appeal. The application form for a petition for appeal will be available for download, and will also be available in the Assessor’s Office as of February 1st.  The Board will inform petitioners of their hearing date and time by mail.
