2018 Revaluation up date 05/29/2018
As of May 2018 the revaluation company (Vision Government Solutions), reported the entry rate for residential inspection was approximately 64%. There were a couple of snow storms which created challenges, but the Homeowners of Hampton have shown great cooperation; involvement is key to being assessed most appropiately. Data collectors from Vision will continue collection of information based on building permits. Within the next couple of weeks, property owners will receive a document known as a Data mailer. The document serves as a tool for owners to review information about their property for accuracy, and report any necessary changes if needed. Instructions are provided.
We continue to analyze the real estate market and building costs for Hampton. The October 1, 2018 assessment date is fast approaching, with your continued cooperation, we hope to mail impact notices (includes updated values), by as early as a date in November. Doing so will allow for the project to move forward at a rate to completion which allows for the Grand List to be filed by the 1/31/19 deadline.
As always, if you have any comments, questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the Assessor's office at 860-455-9132 ext. 5
Thank you again for your continued cooperation!
Jody L. Heon, CCMAI

The Grand list is comprised of three parts: Real Estate, Personal Property and Motor Vehicles. The Assessor's Office must discover, list and value all taxable and nontaxable property located within the Town of Hampton in accordance with Connecticut General Statutes. This office is also responsible for administering exemption programs for the veterans, elderly, blind and disabled persons.
