Assessment petitions due this month

The Wilton Board of Assessment Appeals will meet to hear appeals in March.

Property owners who wish to appeal the assessed value of their property must file a petition to the Board of Assessment Appeals on or before Friday, Feb. 20, to be scheduled for a hearing date. Petitions must be filed in the assessor’s office at town hall by 4:30 p.m. Feb. 20.

The Board of Assessment Appeals will notify petitioners of the specific date, time and place of their hearing.

According to state statutes, if a petition is not received in time, even if it is postmarked Feb. 20, the board may not grant a hearing. Petitions are available in the assessor’s office, which is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The board’s members are Frederick H. Sindel, Charles B. Lewis Jr., and Frank Oliveri.
