It is our goal to treat all customers (taxpayers) in a fair and equitable manner while assessing each property at a uniform percent of value.   The Town of Newstead is currently at 100% Equalization Rate.

If you feel your assessment is incorrect, please make an appointment with the Assessor to discuss your concerns.  If you are still not satisfied, you may go before the Board of Assessment Review on Grievance Day (May 27, 2014) to plead your case.

Please call for an appointment (542-4574) beginning on May 1st and submit the following application to the Town Assessor prior to your appointment.
