Office of the Assessor

The Assessor is responsible for discovering, listing and valuing all taxable and non-taxable property located in town. Connecticut law requires us to list and value all real (e.g., land, houses, stores, etc.) and personal (e.g., motor vehicles, business equipment, etc.) property. This is an annual cycle with an assessment date of October 1. It's the Assessor's responsibility to insure all values are properly and uniformly made and that the grand list is a true and accurate report of all taxable and tax exempt property in the jurisdiction. Assessed values in Connecticut are based on 70% of fair market value. In addition the Town is required to perform a state mandated revaluation every 5 years.

The Town of Portland completed a revaluation for the 2016 grand list.
