2021 Assessment Changes and All-Inclusive Increase
A MESSAGE FROM THE TOWN OF MINERVA,
You soon will be receiving a letter in regards to assessment changes for your property.
In order for the town of Minerva to maintain a 100% full value assessment sometimes it is required to do across the board assessment adjustments.
Assessments are based partly on property sales from the past year and with the increase in sales last year and the increased prices, this has mandated an assessment change.
This year’s increase of 3% is on all properties in the town of Minerva and gives the town an approximate additional two million dollars of assessments.
THIS INCREASE DOES NOT INCREASE YOUR TAX LIABILITY.
Because of the added assessment and the all-inclusive increase, the only thing that will change is the amount per thousand shown on your tax bill and this will decrease by the same percentage.
I hope this helps to clarify the reason behind this increase and if you have any questions I am sure that the Assessors for our town will be more than happy to assist you.
