The Assessing Department staff will be driving a Town vehicle, they may also be wearing a shirt with the Town Seal on it or caring an ID badge with their name and photo on it. They will always knock on the front door of your home first. If you are home, they may ask you a few questions about your home and ask for permission to measure the home. If you are not home, they will measure the exterior of your home, possibly take a photo of the property, and then leave. A property review roughly takes between 5 to 15 minutes. We do not leave a card or hang anything on your door as thieves may see this as a sign that no one is at the property. If you have any questions regarding if your property was visited by the Assessing Department, please call 508-760-6139.
