Revenue Scraps County Assessing Proposal

In response to feedback from town hall meetings across the state, the Department of Revenue (DOR) announced that they are no longer pursuing legislation to re-assign assessment authority from municipalities to counties. Instead, DOR indicated that they will pursue legislation that will allow towns to create consortiums to consolidate assessment services. The Department has not yet released a specific bill draft detailing this alternative proposal.
