  1. Overview

The Assessing Office is responsible for the valuation of all real and personal property located in the Town of Brunswick.  Our office maintains tax records on over 9,000 real estate accounts, 1,000 personal property accounts, and 103 tax maps.  All property is subject to taxation unless exempted by law or subject to another form of taxation, such as excise tax.  Some of our annual responsibilities include: updating property records with changes in property characteristics, tracking ownership changes, updating tax maps, administering property tax relief programs, and analyzing sales prices, construction costs, and income and expense data to estimate market values.

In this office you can also find access to property deeds, property surveys, and street addressing and naming information.
