How Property is assessed:
Property in Maine is assessed according to rules embedded in the State Constitution, Maine Statutes (mostly Title 36), and case law. It is taxed based on its condition and ownership as of April 1 every year. The Selectmen/Assessors are authorized for this work, and the Town contracts with a professional Assessor’s Agent (licensed by the State) to assist them in this task. Field inspection of construction projects generally happens in the Spring. Communication is best conducted via email.
While taxation is the rule and exemption is the exception, there are some exemptions available for homestead owners, veterans, and blind folks, as well as charitable organizations and a few other minor categories. Applications may be found on the state website and must be submitted to the Assessors by April 1 to be credited for the current tax year:
Taxpayers may apply for reduced valuation status by filing a Tree Growth, Open Space, or Farmland application. There are considerable requirements/restrictions attending these categories, and severe penalties for withdrawing property from them. Applications may be found on the state website and must be submitted to the Assessors by April 1 to be credited for the current tax year:
