What about elderly and veterans exemptions?
The law requires that the Assessor appraise taxable property and not the people who own it; under state law, all property is appraised at current fair market value.

There are programs (the Elderly and Totally Disabled State Homeowners Program and the Woodbridge Elderly Program) that provide tax relief for qualifying persons over the age of 65 or those who are deemed totally disabled by Social Security. These are income related programs so please contact the Assessor’s Office at 203-389-3417 for more information.

Other statutes provide exemptions for those who are veterans, disabled, or blind. If you currently have an exemption, a Revaluation does not negate that exemption and in some circumstances, could increase that exemption.
