The Town of Brookfield is currently undergoing the revaluation process for the 2016 Grand List, as mandated by Connecticut State Statute 12-62(b). This statute requires all municipalities to revalue all of its real estate not later than five years after their last revaluation. The Town of Brookfield's previous revaluation was completed as of October 1, 2011.
The primary purpose of a revaluation, which is a mass appraisal of all real property within an assessment jurisdiction, is to eliminate any assessment inequities that may have developed since the implementation of a previous revaluation. This is accomplished by updating the assessments of real property to reflect their fair market value.
Verification of sales has begun for the October 1, 2016 Grand List. Exterior drive-by inspections will begin in the spring.
As part of the revaluation process data mailers will be sent to all property owners. This information will be utilized during the valuation phase of the project. It is essential for the accuracy of your property assessment that the information on record is correct.
The Revaluation will be ongoing throughout the year. The town has hired Vision Goverment Solutions to assist in the revaluation process. Their staff will carry photo identification along with identifying their vehicles. The staffs information is also on file with the First Selectman's Office, the Police and the Assessor's Office.
