The town of Baldwin is scheduled to complete a revaluation program for the 2020 tax year. Typically, every 10 years, municipalities reestablish assessed values throughout the town. This is to bring assessments to fair market value within the standards defined by state law.
All real property in the town of Baldwin will be revalued as to its status on 4/1/2020 for bills issued in July 2020. The last revaluation was completed for 2010. To accurately reflect changes in the market in Baldwin, each property will be inspected and reappraised starting in October 2019. This is to ensure the town’s tax burden is fairly distributed across all property owners.
KRT is the appraisal company hired by Cumberland County Regional Assessing to complete the revaluation program. Representatives from their firm will be inspecting properties and analyzing market data. After new values are established, taxpayers will have the opportunity to meet with KRT staff before bills are sent. KRT will be working on this process with the assessors and Cumberland County Regional Assessing to ensure a fair and timely result. You can find their website HERE.
KRT Appraisal has prepared a presentation to explain the revaluation process and what to expect as the town’s values are reestablished. This presentation includes an explanation of every step, and also a timeline for when each portion of the process is to take place.
