Property Assessment and Valuation Guidance from Bureau of Local Assessment

Our Bureau of Local Assessment (BLA) is responsible for regulation, oversight, training and technical assistance to cities and towns in the areas of real and personal property valuation and classification.

Guidance is provided for the assessment and classification of property; the methods of determining the actual fair cash valuation of different kinds of property for tax purposes; qualifying assessing personnel to classify property; and the adequacy of tax maps and other records.

We also provide guidance and training to assessors on calculation of new growth and personal property through our training page under related services below.
