This board is designed to serve as an appeal body for taxpayers who believe the town has erred in the valuation of their property or has erroneously denied them exemptions.

The Board of Assessment Appeals will meet in March for Real Estate and Personal Property. To file an appeal, the taxpayer must make written application on or before February 20; appear, or have his or her attorney or agent appear, before the Board at one if its meetings; and answer all questions concerning his or her taxable property in Chester.

Application forms are available upon request in the Assessor’s Office or this website. For appeals of Motor Vehicle assessments, the Board meets annually in September.

It is the duty of the three elected members of the Board to process each appeal by reviewing the property in question to determine whether the assessment should be reduced, raised, or left unchanged. The Board, as required by law, notifies each taxpayer in writing as to the action taken in response to the appeal.
