Property Inspections

In order to determine property valuations the Assessing Department will conduct inspections over the course of the year, but most extensively in the winter and spring, to update property record cards and to follow up on properties with building permits obtained through April 1. Inspections will include taking digital pictures of the building(s). If an interior inspection is necessary, we will request entrance at that time. If you are unavailable, we will leave notification to set up an appointment. 

It is our goal to provide fair and equitable assessments for all Readfield properties and appreciate your anticipated cooperation. If you have any questions, please call us at (207) 685-1810 or e-mail at info@readfieldmaine.org.

If you need Tax Information you may contact our front desk clerk by e-mail at info@readfieldmaine.org. She will e-mail you a tax card at no charge. You may also have one faxed to you for $.25 per page. You may also come to the office and purchase a copy for .25 per page. 

Tax Maps

Tax maps are for reference only, may contain errors, and are not suitable for survey or other technical purposes.

Exemption Applications

Exemptions are offered by the Town but are reimbursed by the State. The amount exempted will differ from year to year depending on the Town's assessed value according to the State's ratio.

Old Map & Lot Conversion Chart

Several years ago the Town of Readfield changed the map and lot designations on all pieces of property. If you have a map and lot that you can not find use the conversion chart which will allow you to look up a piece of property in the commitment book and using the conversion chart, find the new map and lot numbers.
