Assessing Department

The municipal Assessor is responsible for administering property tax law by discovering, listing, and valuing all taxable property, both real estate and personal property, according to the Constitution and Laws of the State of Maine. Although the Assessor is a municipally appointed position, he or she is required to abide by State law when assessing properties. This includes valuing all taxable property according to “just value” of fair market value and assessing each taxpayer his or her fair proportion of State, county, and municipal taxes.

The Assessor’s Office will provide taxpayers and all persons with accurate  assessment and tax information.  Information for any and all exemptions allowed by State law is also available in this office.  All records in the Assessor’s Office are available to the public and may be inspected during regular business hours. Various forms and information can be downloaded from Maine.gov Maine Revenue Services.

The Assessor is also responsible for assigning street addresses for new construction according to the 911 Enhanced Street Numbering Ordinance.
