The City’s 2023 Revaluation Project to Determine Fair Market Value of Properties in Norwalk to Begin. Click here for more information.

Earlier in 2023, the City of Norwalk’s Tax Assessor’s Department began the Revaluation process. This process is completed every five years as state law requires all Connecticut municipalities to reevaluate properties, with inspections required every ten years.

In November, the City of Norwalk held an Informational Session on Norwalk’s 2023 Revaluation Project to explain the process and answer people’s questions about next steps. You can watch the recording of that session by visiting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fyq7p5fypI

In December, the City of Norwalk mailed a Notice of New Values to property owners. As mentioned in the notice, property owners have the opportunity to discuss their Notice of New Values by scheduling an informal hearing with a representative of either Vision Government Solutions or Safeground Analytics. These informal review hearings will be done by experienced appraisers who double-check the uniformity and accuracy of information with the property owner. Anyone who wants to schedule an informal hearing can do so by Friday, December 22 by visiting www.vgsi.com/schedules or calling 1-888-844-4300 between 9:00 AM-4:00 PM. If you need the City to reprint your notice, please email PGorman@norwalkct.gov. These informal review hearings will be held from December through mid-January 2024.

  Assessing records are available at any time online awww.norwalkct.gov and through http://gis.vgsi.com/NorwalkCT/Search.aspx.
The Vision website has been updated with the 2023 Grand List.
