The following press release was submitted by the Board of Assessors:
The Wayland Board of Assessors will be launching the second phase of its Full List and Measure effort in April in North Wayland. The Full List and Measure effort, approved by Town Meeting, involves inspecting every building to ensure that the assessors’ data is correct.
We would like to urge residents who may receive a letter to promptly schedule appointments at their convenience. Appraisers from Vision Appraisal, our contractor, will be available some evenings and weekends in an effort to accommodate residents’ schedules.
Homeowners will begin receiving letters this week and inspections begin in April 17th, weather permitting.
The assessors want to thank all the residents in the first phase of the project, in the Southeast part of town, for their outstanding cooperation. An accurate database of all residences ensures fair assessments, which is one of the fundamental principles of the tax system.
The Assessors’ function is to determine the fair market value of all properties in town as of January 1 in any given year.
We thank you for your continued support in this important effort.
Wayland Board of Assessors
