The Assessing Office is responsible for calculating the Assessed Value of each property in Littleton and ensuring that each is assessed equitably in relation to market value. Littleton utilizes computer assisted mass appraisal (CAMA) software provided by Vision Government Solutions of Northborough, MA. The last update of values was performed in 2015 by KRT Appraisal of Haverhill, MA. The assessed values of Littleton properties can be found in the Vision Government Solutions Online Database or at the Town of Littleton website under Town Maps.
KRT Appraisal is the Town's contracted Assessors and is usually in the Town Hall two to three days during the work week. Please feel free to call and speak with them with questions you may have regarding your assessment. Some of the duties of the Town's contracted Assessors are to follow up on building permits, quarterly property inspections and data checks on properties. If you have any questions regarding their credentials, please contact us here at the Town Hall and we will verify who they are and if they are in your neighborhood on that particular day.
