Dear Taxpayer,

It is the intent of the Selectmen to keep data and assessments current each year as the market changes. As a part of this process, the Town of Pelham will be conducting a full revaluation of all properties for the 2016 tax year.  All properties have been inspected on a 5-year continuing basis. 

Assessing Field Review staff members will be throughout town during the month of June to verify that all elements of every property is accurate based on the information that was previously collected.
