Tax Maps and Commitments
Palmyra Revaluation Project 2022-2023
Maine Assessment & Appraisal Services, Inc. is currently starting the process of discovery in Palmyra. This process involves Property Appraisers visiting each and every map and lot. Employees will measure and value all dwellings and outbuildings on the premise and take a photo of the main buildings for our tax records. If someone is available they will ask to do an interior inspection. If no one is home they will leave contact information, measure and do an estimate of valuation. Before the completion of the project property owners will be sent a copy of their tax card and have a chance to question information and have any errors corrected. Revaluation will be used for the 2023 tax commitment.
The best, and most accurate assessment is done with an interior inspection. If you would like to be put on a list to have an Interior Inspection please call the Town Office 207-938-4871
