The City of Pawtucket, RI will be conducting a Statistical Revaluation for 2021. In accordance with RI General Laws 44-5-11.5 and 44-5-11.6, a revaluation is required every three years. The purpose of the revaluation is to reconcile property assessments to their full and fair cash value as of December 31, 2020. A Statistical Revaluation does not require the inspectors to enter properties. Homeowners who have taken out building permits for indoor improvements will be visited to determine if the improvements are complete.
The City of Pawtucket has hired Vision Government Solutions to conduct the revaluation. All Vision employees will carry photo identification, as well as a letter from the Tax Assessor stating the nature of their work. Their cars will be registered with the Pawtucket Police Department. We respectfully request your cooperation with the revaluation team during this process.
Once the review process is complete, and all data is analyzed, new assessments will be mailed to property owners in spring 2021. At that time, Vision Government Solutions will conduct informal appeal hearings with property owners to discuss assessments, at the property owner’s request. Final property assessment will be reflected on the July 2021 tax bill, with further appeal options available through the Tax Assessor’s Office at that time.
Should any property owner have questions or need additional information, please call the Tax Assessor’s Office at 401-728-0500 x. 212.
