Board of Assessment Appeals Members:
Paula Woodward Charlie Burger III Candy Palmer
Section 12-110 through Section 12-117a of the Connecticut General Statutes have been amended by the passage of Public Act 95-283, Public Act 96-1 and Public Act 96-171. These public acts changed the name of the Board of Tax Review to the Board of Assessment Appeals and also significantly changed the method by which taxpayers may appeal their local property assessments. Property owners wishing to appeal their October 1, 2015 or 2014 Supplemental Motor Vehicle assessment to the Board of Assessment Appeals now must submit a written application to the Board on or before March 20, 2016 if mailed, and before 4PM on March 18, 2016 if hand delivered to the office. The Board will review the written
applications and will determine when hearings will be scheduled in March. The Board of Assessment Appeals will mail a written notice of the date, time and place of an appeal hearing to each applicant no later than April 7, 2016 and at least seven calendar days before the hearing date.
NOTE: THE BOARD OF ASSESSMENT APPEALS WILL ONLY HEAR APPEALS ON THE CURRENT GRAND LIST

-Online Voter Registration Link-
Because 2016 is a Presidential year we can expect that voter participation will be strong and that third party organizations and campaigns will be highly active. This is also a reminded to register in advance, or update your information to minimize any confusion on Election Day. The link will help you confirm that your address on file is current as well as your party affiliation. It will be especially helpful in the Presidential and State Primaries because Connecticut only allows enrolled members of the major party to vote in those elections.
