Major responsibilities of this office include the valuation of all land and improvements within the Town of Coventry, including the inspection of all new construction and alterations to existing structures.
Values are placed on businesses, miscellaneous personal property, and motor vehicles and reports are prepared for the State of Connecticut for each transfer. Exemptions are processed and administered for the following:
- Dairy farms
- Open space
- Tax relief
Each requires a separate and complex report to the State of Connecticut, Office of Policy and Management.
The transfer of properties, files, reports, books, and maps, which are prepared or maintained in this office, contain an abundance of information. This information is available to the general public, appraisers, real estate agents, attorneys, title researchers, land surveyors, town officials, and other professionals.
The majority of work for the fiscal year is the computation of the town's grand levy. This is the town's primary source of revenue and constant diligence is required to equalize this levy to the best of our ability.
