2017 Revaluation

The Town of Hartford went through the process of a town-wide revaluation of all real properties. This commenced in February 2016, was completed by July 1, 2017, and constituted the 2017 Grand List.

Thank you to all who assisted in this arduous process.

Thank you for the overwhelming support and cooperation you have given! It was not easy catching up with all of you and the rain, snow, and mud brought on another level of challenge.

Re-Inspection Program Started February 2016

Representatives from Vision Government Solutions of Northborough, Mass, the firm hired by the Town of Hartford, will perform a Town-wide property re-inspection program as part of the 2017 town-wide Revaluation. These inspections began in February 2016. This is a vital part of the process and will take approximately 10 months to complete.

The Data Collectors will carry photo identification and have a sign on their cars. A description of their cars and license plate numbers will be on file with the Hartford Police Department (295-9425) and the Assessor's Office. The Assessor suggests that homeowners request identification before granting anyone permission to enter their home or business.

During this process, Data Collectors will visit all residential and commercial properties to physically measure buildings (exterior only) and do an inspection of the interior and exterior and take one exterior photo. Building characteristics such as size, age, quality of construction, construction materials, improvements, story height, and condition are noted. To ensure a home or business is inspected, a homeowner or company representative must sign a property record card to verify the inspection. The entire process takes approximately 10 to 30 minutes depending on the complexity of the property.

The Assessor's Office appreciates your cooperation and assistance with this program. Data Collectors generally work between 9 am to 6 pm. Monday through Friday. There will be an initial attempt to enter a property; if no one is at the home or business on that occasion a letter will be sent to homeowners and business owners to call and schedule an appointment at their convenience.

Your cooperation is essential to have an accurate accounting of your property and equitable assessment throughout the community.
