Challenges to New Real Estate Revaluation Assessments Are Now Due

by Elliott B. Pollack

A number of Connecticut communities implemented town-wide real estate revaluations as of October 1, 2020; this assessment date will be the basis for taxes due July 1, 2021. See a full list of the revaluation municipalities here.

Challenges to new assessments (70% of market value) must be submitted to the local Board of Assessment Appeals (BAA) pursuant to applicable law by February 20.  However, since February 20, 2021 is a Saturday, take care to determine whether an individual assessor requires a filing to be made by Friday, February 19 or if she will accept a petition by Monday, February 22.  The BAA petition must actually be received at the assessor’s office by the required date; a postmark is insufficient.

To discuss an individual revaluation assessment or to inquire about the appropriate filing date for the municipality in which you own or lease commercial or industrial property, feel free to contact any member of the Pullman & Comley Property Tax and Valuation Department.

Pullman & Comley is proud to announce that the Property Tax and Valuation Department celebrated 25 consecutive years of authorship of the Connecticut chapter of the American Bar Association’s Section of Taxation’s Property Tax Deskbook.  The Deskbook presents important property tax legal requirements of the 50 states.  Pullman & Comley attorneys, Laura Bellotti Cardillo, Michael J. Marafito, Elliott B. Pollack and Gregory F. Servodidio, are assisted by their able paralegals, Elizabeth P. Simonetti and Dana M. Wellner, in this annual project and are proud to celebrate this anniversary.
