Tax Abatement Information
Any resident who believes that his assessment is inaccurate must file an abatement application. The application must be completed in full, signed and submitted to the Assessor’s Office by November 1st. The form must be date-stamped as RECEIVED at the Assessor’s Office for the application to be acted upon. Please be sure to read the back of the abatement application form for important information regarding the abatement process.

Excise Tax Abatement Application
If an owner of a motor vehicle thinks that he/she is entitled to an adjustment of his/her excise bill, it is strongly recommended that he/she pay the bill in full, then contact the Board of Assessors for an application for abatement. Although payment of a bill is not a precondition for an abatement, an owner risks incurring late fees and penalties if an abatement is not granted.
