2022 tentative railroad ceilings

Late last week, we mailed tentative railroad ceilings to 325 impacted municipalities. They should be hitting mailboxes early this week.

Are you a new assessor or county director?

We’ve recently received a large number of secure account changes for the Online Assessment Community. If you’re new to the assessment profession, welcome aboard! Check out our webpage for new assessors and directors to get started.

Please ensure that your muni has responded to our annual name/address review email

In February, we sent emails to supervisors and mayors asking for updated contact information for the assessor, supervisor or mayor, municipal clerk, tax receiver, and attorney.

We use this information to update Municipal Profiles and our contact database.

If your town or city has not responded to that email, please encourage them to do so. (Or, in many cases, the assessor responds on behalf of the municipality.)

Here’s how the email is sent out:

If there were no changes in your community, please email to let her know.

If you have email or staffing changes mid-year, please notify Colleen within 5 business days. You can also email Colleen with any questions regarding our annual name and address review.
