The Board of Selectmen have awarded KRT Appraisal, LLC the 2017-2022 Contracted Assessor/Cyclical Review Contract. KRT will be performing Cyclical Reviews of all properties in town. The process begins with verifying the current data on the property record card and if a property owner is not at home exterior measurements are taken and at a later date letters are sent to request an interior inspection. Each year the Department of Revenue randomly selects property record cards to review and ensure that the data being collected is accurate and complete (RSA 21-J:II) then submits to the Board of Selectmen a Cyclical Review.
All KRT employees carry photo identification, a letter from the Assessing Office, and display the town seal on their personal vehicle. Please contact the Assessor's Office for further verification.
