SCHOOL BUDGET VOTE:

Unless there is a qualifying special circumstance.
What you should know about your taxes:
1. The revaluation is finalized. If you did not contact the assessor regarding any errors when you received your property card, and you feel the value is incorrect, you will need to apply for an official abatement.
In many cases, any changes will be made to your property record for 2017 tax billing cycle, as the bills have already been set for this year.This also applies if you did not allow the assessor to make an interior inspection.
2. Some values went up, and some went down, and some stayed the same. The most important thing is that all similar homes have similar values, and your tax bill reflects a fair portion of the amounts necessary to pave, plow, and maintain roads, pick up rubbish and recycling, keep the lights on and the fire department running, and of course pay the town's share of the county tax bill and the school bill.
3. Overall, the increase in taxes is due to the increase in the school budget.This increase has nothing to do with building the new school.
If you wish to apply for an abatement or to speak to the assessors agent, please call the town office. (Please note that the assessor's agent does not have specified office hours at the Town Office now that the hearings are complete.) If no one is available to take your call, please leave your name, address, phone number, and a brief description of your reason for calling.The assessor's agent will return your call as soon as he is available.
