What if I disagree with my assessment?

Connecticut State Law provides for 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 20th.

The Petition is available from the Assessor’s Office or the Town’s website www.madisonct.org/assessor under Assessment Appeals.  Only individuals who have completed and filed a timely Petition Form will be granted a hearing before the Board of Assessment Appeals. These criteria are dictated by state statute.
