The Town of Raymond established a Board of Assessment Review in 2005. As a result, the Selectmen appointed five members to this new board: 3 regular members (1 for one year; 1 for two years; and 1 for three years) and two alternates (1 for one year and 1 for two years). The purpose of this board is to hear appeals from the decisions made by the Board of Assessors (Selectmen) regarding property values. The board meets infrequently upon the request of a taxpayer who wants to appeal his/her valuation.
Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and reside in Raymond. No experience is necessary, but an interest, or knowledge, of real estate appraisal; assessing; land use development; or planning is a plus.
Interested persons should submit an application to:
