Revaluation Team to visit properties in Madison
Madison Town officials remind homeowners of the revaluation project being conducted this year by representatives of the firm, Vision Government Solutions.
The first phase of the revaluation process is collecting current information on all properties in the Town of Madison. Data Mailers have been sent to all residential improved property owners. The mailers will be followed by a full data collection effort.
Data collectors will be wearing an identification badge and will have written documentation from the Town stating their affiliation with the project. All Vision representatives and their vehicles are also registered with the Madison Police Department. Homeowners are encouraged to ask for this identification prior to admitting anyone into their homes. If a homeowner has a question as to the identity of a data collector, they may call the Madison Police Department or the Assessor’s office for further confirmation.
As the data collector visits each property, they will confirm the exterior measurements of each building and ask to inspect the interior. The interior inspections take only 10 to 15 minutes and include a quick tour of the house, including basement and attic space. The data collector will count the number of total rooms and make notations on heating systems, interior construction and extra features of the home. The homeowner will be asked to sign the data collection form to verify that the inspection took place. An interior inspection will not be conducted unless a person 18 years or older is available to sign the form.
Data collectors generally work between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. If the homeowner is unavailable at the time of Vision Government Solutions visit, a letter with instructions on how to schedule an appointment will be sent.
Homeowners are reminded that specific questions regarding their current assessment should be directed to the Assessor’s Office. The Assessor’s Office can be reached at (203) 245-5652 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
