Other duties of the Assessor’s Office include processing and administering various tax relief and exemption programs for eligible taxpayers, processing property transfers by reviewing the deeds filed in the Wilton Land Records, assisting the public with motor vehicle adjustments, and analyzing facts for court cases arising from tax appeals.
