IMPORTANT INFORMATION CONCERNING THE BETHEL REVALUATION
As mandated by Connecticut State Statutes, the Town of Bethel is starting work for the revaluation of all real estate in the town. This revaluation will be effective for the Grand List of October 1, 2022. Tax bills for the new revaluation will be due by July 1, 2023.
The Town of Bethel has contracted with Tyler Technologies |CLT Appraisal Services to assist the Assessor with this task. This process will be ongoing through most of 2022.
In the coming weeks, data collectors from CLT will begin the task of inspecting individual properties that have sold since October 1, 2020. To gather necessary data for this important project. The data collector will carry an official photo identification badge and will be registered with the Assessor’s office and police department. The Town urges its property owners NOT to allow anyone to enter their building without proper ID. Data collectors will ask permission to inspect the interior of each property. They will verify the exterior measurements of each building on a property and they will ask for verification of recent sales information. The data collectors will not be able to answer questions regarding value, assessments or taxes.
Cooperation is important to the overall success of the project. Property Owners will be asked to sign the data collection form to verify that a data collector visited the property. If no one is at building, the data collector will measure the exterior of all buildings on the property at the time of the initial visit. A letter requesting an interior inspection will follow.
Property Owners may call the Assessor’s office at 203-794-8507 if they have any questions.
