City of Pittsfield Assessor's Office Services

The City of Pittsfield Tax Assessor is the local official who is responsible for assessing the taxable value of all properties within City of Pittsfield, and may establish the amount of tax due on that property based on the fair market value appraisal. The City of Pittsfield assessor's office can help you with many of your property tax related issues, including:

Property Tax Appraisals
The City of Pittsfield Tax Assessor will appraise the taxable value of each property in his jurisdiction on a yearly basis, based on the features of the property and the fair market value of comparable properties in the same neighbourhood. The assessor's office can provide you with a copy of your property's most recent appraisal on request.
Property Renovations and Re-Appraisals
If you renovate your property (such as by adding living space, bedrooms, or bathrooms), the City of Pittsfield Assessor will re-appraise your home to reflect the value of your new additions. Renovations may be reported to the Assessor's Office by the zoning board, contractors, or by the homeowner themselves. Unreported renovations will generally be discovered by the Assessor during the next on-site appraisal of the property. The Assessor may also re-appraise a property in the event of significant damage
Paying Your Property Tax

Property Tax Appeals
