Please note that you should not try to estimate your next tax bill by multiplying your new assessment and the old tax rate as it will produce an erroneous tax amount. As the total value of the Town has increased, the tax rate will drop proportionally, barring any significant changes in spending voted on at Town & School district meetings. The newly established values will be implemented on the December bill.
