The Assessor’s primary objective is to ensure that all taxable property located within the Town of Enfield is assessed in accordance with applicable laws to ensure that the Town’s tax base is distributed fairly and accurately. To accomplish the objective, the assessor must discover, list and value all property within Enfield. The result of these efforts is an annual of the Grand List. The Grand List is a record of all taxable and tax-exempt property in Enfield.
Under Section 12-62 of the Connecticut General Statutes, the Town is required to implement a revaluation no later than five years from the preceding revaluation.
The Town of Enfield has contracted Vision Appraisal Technology to assist in conducting a Town-wide Revaluation Project, effective for the October 1, 2011 Grand List. This process has begun and property owners should expect to see a Vision Appraisal representative at their property to collect and verify physical data on each property in Enfield. Photos of all properties will also be taken. All Vision representatives will carry Identification Cards and have their cars listed with both the Assessing Office and the Police Department.
The purpose of revaluation is to determine the fair market value of all properties in the Town of Enfield. Fair market value is described as the price that you could expect to receive if you sold your property in its current condition, after being exposed to a competitive, open market for a reasonable time, to a knowledgeable buyer acting prudently under all conditions requisite to a fair sale and assuming that neither buyer nor seller is under duress.
Revaluation ensures that the value of your property and that of your neighbors, in your neighborhood and throughout the town is equitable and updated to reflect the current fair market value. It is fair market value that is the basis for the taxable assessed value, with is set by law at 70% of the fair market value. The annual tax bill is determined by multiplying the mill rate by your property’s assessed value.
