Judy Rogers, Supervising Clerk
Kelly Perry, Clerk
The Tax Assessor's Office is responsible for assigning the fair market value to all real estate as of the date of assessment. Per Rhode Island General Law, the Town is currently required to revaluate property assessments once every three years. This, in essence, locks in your property assessment for a three year period unless changes are made to your property such as adding additional living space, a new deck, remodeling, etc. Therefore, the date of assessment is December 31st in the year of any property assessment revaluation. Current assessments are based on a 12/31/2014 market value.

Please note that the Tax Assessor does not establish the tax rate. The tax rate is established by simply dividing the voted upon budget by the residents, into the total assessed value of the town.
EX: FTR BUDGET/TOTAL VALUE OF TOWN=TAX RATE
