New assessments for all property in the town of Putnam will be mailed out November 22nd.
As previously notified, the Town of Putnam’s Assessors Office has been undergoing it’s State Mandated Property Revaluation with Tyler Technologies, their Northeastern Connecticut office. Since April 2018, properties have all been reviewed with at least half having had a physical inspection. We hope we have kept the taxpayers informed, to their satisfaction, of the process and current goings on.
At this time all properties have been reviewed, recent sales in Putnam have been analyzed and each property has been given an updated Market Value, as of October 1, 2019. The Assessment notices will give your old assessment, (70% of the October 1st, 2014 Market Value) and your NEW assessment, (70% of the October 1st, 2019 Market Value). Please note, exemptions will not be reflected in the assessments. Anyone who has applied for the Farm, Forest or Open Space land classifications will see it reflected in their new assessments; if you feel you may qualify for any of these land classifications, you have until December 31st to apply, contact the assessor’s office for an application or find it on our page under FORMS
There will be instructions on how to appeal your assessment with the revaluation company, by appointment only, on the form. Appeals will be scheduled for December 2nd through December 13th and held in the Town Hall. If you have any questions, please always feel welcome to reach out to the assessor’s office at 860-963-6800.
