Assessor Duties:

The Town of Mount Desert is beginning a town-wide revaluation, starting July 1, 2021. Please click here for the Notice of Revaluation. If you have general questions about the revaluation process, click here for a FAQ document published by Maine Revenue Services.

The Assessing Office maintains a record of each property within the town.  The records contain prior ownership information, building characteristics, selling prices, copies of deeds, tax maps and aerial photographs.  The Assessor's Office maintains these records to enable appropriate and equitable assessment of property for tax purposes.  The Assessor's Office analyzes sales information to determine the accuracy of assessments, and reports the sales information to the Maine Revenue Service annually.  All of these records are open to the public for inspection during office hours. See our Tax Rate Info page for more information.
