No. In fact, the Assessor’s Office encourages you to review your assessments and appeal IF you sincerely question the value. The Assessor’s Office will see that each taxpayer is satisfied within the limits set by state statute, and at the same time assure that assessments are on a fair share basis. In the great majority of cases, when the Assessor finds that the taxpayer is right, an adjustment is made immediately. The Assessor would like to satisfy each property owner, but has a duty to all taxpayers in the city to be fair and equitable, and work within the guidelines of Connecticut State Statutes.
