What about the elderly and other hardship cases?

The law requires that the Revaluation Company (and the Assessor) assess/appraise property.  As sympathetic as we may be, State Law does not permit us to take matters of hardship into consideration. However, there are Connecticut State Statues that provide tax relief for qualifying persons who are totally disabled and/or over 65 years of age.  There are also other Statutes that provide exemption for veterans, the disabled and the blind.


If you have any questions regarding these programs, please call the Assessor’s Office at (203) 245-5652. There is also information available on the Town’s website www.madisonct.org/assessor.
