The Assessor's Office is responsible for keeping the record ownership of property current, and the valuation of business personal property, motor vehicles and real estate for each October 1st Grand List.
In conjunction with these duties, we also process exemption applications for the elderly, totally disabled, veterans, blind, exemptions for EMT, volunteer firemen and handicapped adapted vehicles.
Our mission is the commitment to produce the best compilation and value of property in Newtown while serving the public in an empathetic and equitable manner.
The first phase of the revaluation process is collecting current information on all of the properties in Newtown.
The data collectors will be visiting each property. Data collector’s will be wearing an identification badge and will have written documentation from the town stating their affiliation with the project. All vehicles and representatives are registered with the Newtown Police Department.
Homeowners are encouraged to ask for this identification prior to admitting anyone into their homes.
If a homeowner has a question as to the identity of the data collector, they may call the
Assessor’s office for further confirmation at (203) 270-4240.
Data collectors generally work between the hours of 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. If the homeowner is unavailable at this visit, a letter with instructions on how to schedule an inspection appointment will be sent.
