Property assessments available for public review

NEWBURYPORT -- The City of Newburyport Assessor’s Department is nearing the completion of its fiscal 2014 property revaluation project.

The project will be complete when the Massachusetts Department of Revenue issues final certification of assessments. The DOR has issued “preliminary” certification of assessments and those proposed assessments are now available for public viewing. They are available in the assessor’s office during regular City Hall hours through Monday, Nov. 4. Proposed assessments are also available on the city’s website, www.cityofnewburyport.com.

This disclosure period is for the purpose of finding physical errors that should be brought to the attention of the assessor immediately. Taxpayers who do not find physical errors but choose to challenge their property assessments may do so by filing an application for abatement after the actual tax bills are mailed later in December. The filing deadline for abatement applications will be Monday, Feb. 3.

The fiscal 2014 property assessments should reflect 100 percent of fair market value as of Jan. 1, 2013. These assessments are based on market activity that occurred during calendar year 2012.
