The Town of Bolton voted to replace the office of lister with a professional, appointed assessor.  Bolton’s Town Assessor is Ted Nelson.  His office hours are Wednesdays from 10 am – 2 pm.

Notice of Grievance Hearings

Bolton’s Assessor, Ted Nelson, has “lodged” the abstract for the Grand List for 2021-2022. This means that the values of all property in Bolton have been established for the 2021-2022 tax year.  If the town’s assessed value of your property has changed from the previous year, YOU WILL RECEIVE A WRITTEN NOTICE.  Notices were mailed on Thursday, May 20, 2021.  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 2020-2021.

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 9, 2021 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.
