CANTERBURY 2020 REVALUATION
Canterbury began its state mandated 5-year Revaluation in December 2019 with residential data collection. Vision Government Solutions has been contracted to complete the revaluation for October 1, 2020.

Change in Revaluation Procedure as of March 23rd, 2020: In order to continue to ensure the utmost accuracy in data collection, data collectors will go to each property requiring an inspection and drive by to review the exterior information on each building.  Data collectors will not enter any property at this time to ensure the health and safety of all parties during the Covid19 pandemic.  Please see the document below dated March 23rd, 2020 for more details.

The major phases to a municipal revaluation are: Data Collection, Market Analysis, Valuation, Field Review and Informal Hearings. Approximately 1,000 properties will be visited. Every data collector will wear a photo ID and their vehicles will be registered with the state police.

The Assessor's office is primarily responsible for preparing the Town's Grand List. The Grand List is generated each year as of October 1 and is a record of all taxable and tax exempt property. Taxable property includes real estate and personal property, including motor vehicles. The office is also responsible for maintaining the assessor maps and data about all properties, and for applying tax exemptions or abatements such as the veterans, disabled, elderly, blind and PA 490 programs.

Please call the Assessor's Office to find out more information about these programs or to set up an appointment.
