Welcome to the Assessor page on the Town of Middlefield website!  The Office of the Assessor is responsible for discovering, listing and valuing all real property, business personal property and motor vehicles located within the legal boundaries of the Town of Middlefield as of October 1 each year, in accordance with Connecticut State Statutes.

BENEFIT PROGRAMS: There are many programs available to its residents.   State and local Homeowner benefit programs for our Elderly and Disabled, as well as Veterans and Legally Blind exemptions are offered by providing proof of income and filling out the appropriate application forms.  Please refer to the tab listed above for more information.

LAND EXEMPTIONS: Also available are land exemption programs, such as Farm, Forest and Open Space.  Applications are available in the Assessor’s Office, or on the Assessor’s State Website (CAAO) under ‘forms’.

REVALUATION – 2021:

Middlefield has contracted Vision Government Solutions to conduct a full revaluation of all properties within the legal limits of the Town of Middlefield, effective for the October 1, 2021 Grand List.  Data Mailers will be sent to all residential property owners in late April 2021, requesting verification of details regarding your home.  This is an important step in updating and maintaining accurate records.  We appreciate your cooperation in returning the questionnaire, completed and signed at your earliest convenience.

Field inspectors will also be seen throughout town, measuring and reviewing properties, taking photos of the exterior of homes and commercial properties, and conducting door-to-door building permit inspections.  They will be carrying identification, and their vehicles will be registered with the Assessor’s Office, and local Police, for your protection.

Thank you for your anticipated cooperation in this process.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the Assessor’s office.

MOTOR VEHICLES:  The Assessor’s Office also processes adjustments to motor vehicles based on sale of, transfer out of state, trade in, junked, stolen, or donation, to name a few.  Please provide adequate proof by submitting a copy of the sale of the vehicle, letter of donation, DMV plate cancellation receipt, insurance cancellation, out of state registration, etc., for an adjustment to your assessment/taxes.     Other information may be requested by the Assessor for verification.

PERSONAL PROPERTY: All active businesses in town must file a Personal Property Declaration by November 1 of every year.  If you are a new business in Middlefield, please contact the Assessor’s Office, and a form will be sent to you.

 

For more information on any of the information or programs listed above, please feel free to contact me Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  at 860-349-7111; or leave a message and I will be happy to return your call.
