Notice of Grievance Hearings

 Notice of Grievance Hearings

Bolton’s Assessor, Ted Nelson, has “lodged” the abstract for the Grand List for 2022-2023. This means that the values of all property in Bolton have been established for the 2022-2023 tax year.  If the town’s assessed value, or current use value of your property has changed from the previous year, YOU WILL RECEIVE A WRITTEN NOTICE.  Notices were mailed on Thursday, May 19, and Wednesday May 25, 2022.  If you do NOT RECEIVE A WRITTEN NOTICE, this means that the town’s assessed value of your property has NOT CHANGED and remains the same as 2021-2022.

Grievance hearings (meaning if you do not agree with the town’s assessed value of your property) with the Assessor, Ted Nelson, will be held on Wednesday, June 8, 2022 beginning at 10 a.m.  in person, at the Town Office. Appointments are scheduled concurrently beginning at 10 a.m.  Grievance forms for property owners to fill out are available on the town website or by calling the town office.  The formal grievance notice is below:
