ASSESSOR
 
The primary function of the Assessor's Office is to prepare the Grand list each year for the purpose of tax collection to fund the needs of the Town's General Government and Education budgets. 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.
 
Questions concerning assessed value, adjustments, exemptions, tax relief and motor vehicle tax credits should be directed to the Assessor's Office.
Questions regarding billing, tax balances due, amounts paid and interest should be directed to the Tax Collector's office.
