Property Assessments

The Hudson Assessing Department has hired a contractor, KRT Appraisal LLC, to conduct house-to-house data collection on residential properties, for 2018-2019, for purposes of future property revaluation preparation, in addition to Town of Hudson personnel. All field personnel have photo identification issued by the Town and their vehicle information is on record at the Hudson Police Department. It is requested that property owners please allow the personnel to review the interior of property as well as allow them to conduct exterior measurements. Should you have any questions or concerns in regards to this process please contact the Assessing Department (886-6009). Thank you for your continued cooperation.
