How will I know if my assessment is equitable?

Compare your properties to similar properties in your area that sold in the previous year.  Your value should be in-line with these sale prices.  You can review the field cards for these sales in the Assessor’s Office or a summary of the field cards online at www.madisonct.org/assessor.
