Property owners wishing to appeal their 2013 Grand List real estate or business personal property assessment or their 2012 supplemental motor vehicle assessment before the Board of Assessment Appeals must submit a written application to the Board on or before Feb. 20. A written application is required by law. It may be delivered by mail or hand delivered to the Assessor’s Office. Only those submitting an application will be given a hearing date by the Board of Assessment Appeals. An application must be submitted for each property to be appealed before the board. Connecticut General Statute 12-111 requires that the application to appeal an assessment must contain certain information and items. The minimum requirements are: Property owner’s name, name and position of the person signing the appeal application, description of the property, name and address of the person to whom correspondence is to be sent, reason for the appeal, appellant’s estimate of value, signature of the property owner or that of his duly authorized agent (attach authorization), date on which the appeal application is signed.
For the convenience of the appellant, applications to appeal an assessment to the Board of Assessment Appeals will be available in the Assessor’s Office beginning tomorrow, Feb. 1. The Assessor's Office is located in Town Hall, 84 S Main St. You may also visit their website at www.cheshirect.org.
The Board will review the written application, determine their meeting dates and inform owners of a hearing date and time. The Board of Assessment Appeals will mail a written notice of the date, time and place of an appeal hearing to each applicant.
