The City of Portsmouth has contracted with Vision Government Solutions to do a Statistical Revaluation of property values for Fiscal Year 2020 / Tax Year 2019. Vision will be working with the Assessor’s Office to make this project a success. This revaluation will review all assessments throughout the City and estimate the current market value.
The major phases of the revaluation will be: Market Analysis, Valuation, Field Review and Informal Hearings; the Data Collection is completed on a cyclical basis assuring property data for each property is reviewed at least once every five years.
Employees from Vision Government Solutions will be reviewing properties throughout the City from June through September. Each employee will have their picture posted on the Assessor’s web page (see below), will be wearing a Vision Government Solutions ID and carrying a letter of introduction from the Assessor’s Office.
You can visit the Vision Government Solutions website at www.vgsi.com for information that explains the revaluation process, and also to view your 2018 property record card. The valuation phase will be starting late spring/early summer and will be finalized in August/September. Contractors will be driving through the city reviewing properties, an Assessors' Office sign will also be posted in the vehicle window, and their car is register with the Police as well as the Assessor’s Office at City Hall.
If you have any questions about the revaluation or need additional information please contact the Assessor’s Office at (603) 610-7249.
