Revaluation begins

The town of Burrillville has contracted with Vision Government Solutions Inc. to conduct a state-mandated property tax revaluation.

The goal of the revaluation project is to determine the market value of all taxable properties within the town as of Dec, 31, 2018. The last revaluation was conducted in 2015.

Throughout the project, Vision’s staff will be in the neighborhoods throughout the town. The company will attempt to physically visit, measure and inspect properties that have sold recently, which helps in the analysis of determining fair market value. They will also be visiting any properties that have unfinished construction or have taken out building permits recently. All employees are required to carry identification and have their vehicles on file with the Assessor’s office and Police department. The process will last over the next several months and be completed in the spring of 2019.

New assessed values will be reflected on the 2019 tax bills.  If taxpayers have any questions regarding the revaluation project, call Jennifer Mooney at 568-4300, ext.126 or Alma Uglialoro at 568-4300, ext. 125.
