What documentation do I submit when filing my Petition to the Board of Assessment Appeals?

If an agent represents you, a Notarized Agent Form must be on file with your petition. Agent forms are online at www.madisonct.org/assessor or by contacting the Assessor’s Office at (203) 245-5652.  Be prepared to present tangible evidence that shows why your assessment is incorrect or inequitable.  For example, you might consider:

  • Appraisals that are submitted should be for property tax purposes reflecting the fair-market value of the property as of the date of the revaluation (i.e. October 1, 2018)
  • Documents of comparable properties that demonstrate that you are being unfairly assessed
  • Your Field Card and the Field Cards of comparable properties

The documentation submitted to the Board of Assessment Appeals becomes part of the official record and cannot be returned.
