City Assessor

The laws of the State of Maine serve as the framework within which property tax assessment is administered in Old Town. The City Assessor discovers, describes, and values all real and personal property for the purpose of taxation in Old Town. When the city and school budgets are approved each spring, the City Assessor prepares a list of taxable properties and commits the assessments to the City Tax Collector for collection. All records compiled by the City Assessor are made available for public inspection at City Hall. These same records are reported to Maine Revenue Services in Augusta and then audited by this department annually. The City Manager appoints citizens to the three-member Board of Assessment Review. The Board of Assessment Review is utilized to review appeals of property values.

April Buchanan has been the City Assessor since 2022.
