Newport net tax valuationis $739,559,511, up 65.947%



NEWPORT -- A report listing preliminary assessment values of Newport property prepared by Avitar

Association was released by Finance Director Paul Brown at a meeting of the Newport Board of

Selectmen Monday night.


Individual assessments were sent to Newport property owners by Avitar. "Sales prior to the April 1st

assessment date are relied upon to establish new base land and building rates with the goal of bringing all assessments to 100 percent of fair market value," the Avitar report stated.


Property owners were informed if they feel an error exists and would like to schedule a phone

appointment to review their assessment or to contact Avitar with specific questions, may go to the Avitar

website at www.avitarassociates.com/appointments for details.


Please note that you can compare your new assessment by multiplying $19.73 and comparing that

amount to your final tax bill (December) from 2021. This amount will not be the 2022 bill amount as

there were changes in spending voted at the Town and School District meetings which will be included

in the new tax rate. The newly established values will be implemented on the December bill.
