The tax assessor reports the final tax rate for fiscal 2012-13 is $18.99, citing changes to Tiverton's net value and an increase in personal exemptions.
With property revaluations completed, the Tiverton tax assessor reported Thursday the final tax rate increase is nine cents more than the estimated rate of $18.90 approved at the May 15 financial town referendum. Assessor David Robert said the reason for the change is the net value of the town, including tangible property, was estimated to be approximately $1.87 billion after the revaluation. However, the final town net value is $1,860,337,256, a difference of $9,662,744. Robert said the lower net value requires an additional nine cents to compensate for the difference. "When estimating the net value of the town, I anticipated that the town’s overall value would decrease overall by 15 percent," he said, noting the final decrease percentage…

The early figures are in from the data collectors conducting property revaluations. Residents should expect notices later this week.
The overall property value of 8,055 Tiverton households, including vacant land, has decreased approximately 15 percent, according to the Tiverton Tax Assessor's Office on Tuesday. Following up on the full property revaluations by Certified Revaluation Company (CRC) that began last June, Assessor David Robert said single family home values declined approximately 16 percent and in the past three years, the average single family home has lost an approximate $50,000 in market value. "Residents are reminded that not all properties will see this change," he said in the press release. "Depending on location, views, condition, and other factors, some properties will see only a slight change in market value, while others may see a higher decline." …

The following is a press release issued by the Tiverton Tax Assessor's Office: The Town of Tiverton Tax Assessor’s Office is in the final steps in a major overhaul of their tax assessor maps. When Tax Assessor David Robert was first hired, he noted that the use of the Map-Block-Card-Unit parcel identification system was problematic on several levels. In Rhode Island, less than a handful of municipalities use this method of identification due to its cumbersomeness and non-standardization of a numbering system, particularly here in Tiverton. In most town documents, including tax bills that are issued, it only shows the Block and Card number, but not the map, so residents and real estate professionals could not easily look up where the parcel…

Beginning next week, data collectors will be reassessing all taxable properties in Tiverton to determine current market value.
Data collectors from Certified Revaluation Company, Inc. (CRC) will be hitting Tiverton’s streets starting next Monday, June 27, to conduct the state-mandated complete property tax revaluation. It was last conducted in 2008. Residents will be receiving information in the mail from the town containing the day the collector will be at their house. Last week, Tax Assessor David Robert said this is a full revaluation, where approximately 8,055 properties in town, including vacant land, are reassessed to reflect current market value of all taxable properties. This is unlike three years ago when it was just a statistical revaluation recording of property sales. It includes interior and exterior inspections of all properties. The attached town …
