Property Surveys, Tax Maps
Tax maps show property boundary lines based on deed descriptions. Tax maps do not include any structures as references for site boundary lines. The Assessor’s Office can provide tax maps.
Survey maps show property boundary lines typically referenced to structures to assist with onsite determination of boundary lines. Survey maps usually become part of sales and mortgage closing documents; you or your legal advisor may be in possession of your property survey map. The Assessor’s Office cannot provide survey maps.
Current and accurate records ensure fair assessments. Assessment staff regularly inspect properties to update data, sketches, and property descriptions. Staff wear Town photo identification when performing inspections, and they will leave a door hanger notice following property inspection visits. Please contact the Assessor’s Office if you would like to know more about this process.
If you would like to schedule an assessment inspection to update a property description please contact Assessor’s Office. Inspections take place between 9:00 AM and 3:30 PM on non-holiday weekdays.
