Assessing

Print

The Tax Assessor is responsible for discovering, describing and determining property value of all Real and Personal Property subject to property taxation, and must comply with Maine State Statutes primarily Title 36 of the Maine Revised Statutes Annotated (MRSA).

To raise the funds for the budget approved by the City Council, the Assessor prepares a list of these properties annually and commits the assessments to the City Tax Collector for collection. The Assessing Office then reports to the State Department of Revenue Services regarding its activities for the year.

Records compiled by the Assessor are made available for public inspection at City Hall.
