2022-2023 Tax Commitment

Each year, the Assessing Department reviews properties for any changes and finalizes assessments for the Fiscal Year. Once assessments are finalized, the tax lists are sent to the Tax Collector to be processed for billing. This annual process is called “commitment.”

FY 2022-2023 assessments were committed on August 25, 2022. The mill rate is $15.39 per $1,000 valuation for taxes due on October 17, 2022 and March 15, 2023. Fall tax bills will be sent out in early September, 2022.

2022 Assessments, property details and updated PDF "Field Cards" for each property are now available on our Vision Online Database.  Please refer to our “How to Read Your Property Card” guide.

Please note that because assessments are as of April 1, any changes to a property since then, including changes in ownership, will not be reflected online. Although assessments have been finalized, property owners are always welcome to review their property information and reach out to us with any questions.

To learn more about the process for determining the 2022-2023 tax rate, please see linked article "2022-2023 Tax Rate Set".  The Assessor also delivered a brief presentation at the Town Council meeting on September 7th.  Presentation content begins at the "2:01:00" time of the video: https://youtu.be/2amLiF7DUgE?t=7260
