What if I still don’t agree with the decision from the Informal Hearing?

Connecticut State Law provides for a municipal Board of Assessment Appeals.  If you feel that your assessment is incorrect for any reason, you have the right to file a Petition to the Board of Assessment Appeals.  The petition must be filed in the Assessor’s Office on or before February 20, 2019. The Petition Form will be available February 1st online at www.madisonct.org/Assessor or in the Assessor’s Office.  Only individuals who have completed and filed a timely Petition Form will be granted a hearing before the Board of Assessment Appeals. If an agent represents you, a Notarized Agent Form must be on file with your petition or brought to your hearing.  It is recommended (as you did in the Informal Hearing) to bring whatever documents, calculations and other evidence you believe correctly determines the value of your property. In a limited number of cases the Board may want to schedule a site visit to your property.
