The Oxford Assessor's Office primary task is to discover, list, value and maintain records of real estate, motor vehicle and businesses in Oxford. Our main function is to prepare a Grand List representing the total assessed value of all taxable and tax exempt properties located within our Town on October 1st.
Assessments for real estate property are computed at 70% of the estimated market value at the time of the last revaluation. The value is valid until the next revaluation. Yearly adjustments are made for new construction, additions and alterations.
Revaluations of real estate is required pursuant to Connecticut General Statute 12-62a, every 5 years. The next revaluation for Oxford will be for the 2015 Grand List.
The Motor Vehicle Department sends lists to us twice a year. Assessments for motor vehicles are computed at 70% of the average retail values as supplied by the National Automobile Dealers Association.
Personal Property is comprised of equipment, furniture & fixtures, supplies, unregistered vehicles. The business owners declare this to us each year prior to November 1.
The Assessors objective is to assist taxpayers in understanding the assessment of their properties; to help professionals such as appraisers, surveyors and title searchers to obtain information on properties. Our office maintains land maps, property description cards and ownership lists. We are also responsible for the administration of property exemption programs such as:
* Veteran's Programs

* Blind & Disabled
* Farm, Forest & Open Space
* Manufacturing; Commercial Vehicles
