The Town of Westport contracts with an outside firm, Associated Appraisal Consultants, Inc., for assessment services. The assessors' role is to discover, list and place value on all taxable real and personal property in the Town in a uniform matter.

The property assessment is a value placed upon your property which determines what portion of the local property tax levy will be borne by your property. Your property assessment is an estimate of the market value of your property. The company keeps property records which include square footage, number of rooms, year built and other pertinent information.
