NOTES ON PROCESSING OF EXEMPTIONS:
It is the responsibility of the Assessor to accept, review and process (approve or deny) exemption applications. If an exemption meets all the states requirements set by state property tax law and the application is filed before the appropriate deadline, the exemption is granted. We are granted the authority by state property tax law to request any and all documentation necessary to determine eligibility for any exemption.
The more money that is removed from the assessment roll for exemption reductions, the higher the tax rates must be to compensate for the lost revenue. In some cases, a town may have more property tax exemptions than actual parcels of property within the town because many properties have more than one exemption.
Documents that may be required for various types of exemptions include, but are not limited to:
