Assessing Department


The Town of Monmouth assessing function is vested in the Board of Assessors (Select Board). The Board of Assessors is supported by an appointed Assessing Agent. The Assessing Agent is responsible for administering property tax law by discovering, listing, and valuing all taxable property, both real estate and personal property, according to the Constitution and Laws of the State of Maine. Although the Assessing Agent is a municipally appointed position, he or she is required to abide by State law when assessing properties. This includes valuing all taxable property according to “just value” or fair market value and assessing each taxpayer their equal proportion of State, county, and municipal taxes.


The Assessor’s Office provides taxpayers and all persons with accurate  assessment and tax information. Information for any and all exemptions allowed by State law is also available in this office.  All records in the Assessor’s Office are available to the public and may be inspected during regular business hours.
