If you have good reason to believe your new tax assessment is too high, you still have time to lodge your dispute with the town.
The deadline to file a tax abatement with the Salem Assessors office is Feb. 1. The assessors office says applications must be filed either via U.S. Postal Service or hand delivered to the office.
The form itself can be found online here or at assessors office at City Hall.
Petitions are heard by the Board of Assessors, which meets monthly in the assessors office on Washington Street.
