THE COVENTRY REVALUATION PROCESS IS NOW NEARLY COMPLETED AND EVERY PROPERTY OWNER SHOULD BE RECEIVING A LETTER IN THE MAIL. CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Dear Property Owner,
The Town of Coventry, in accordance with Rhode Island State Statute 44-5-11.6, has completed its Statistical Revaluation. The purpose of this Revaluation is to bring the assessed values of property in line with the current market values.
Your new valuation is effective December 31, 2016 and applicable to the 2017 tax bill. It represents the full value of your property based upon 2016 market values. Please do not multiply this value by the current tax rate. The new tax rate will be set by the Town at the annual Financial Town Meeting. Your assessed values do not reflect any exemptions to which you may be entitled.
A listing of all properties is available on the internet at www.nereval.com. They are also available at the Assessor’s office during normal business hours. These listings are for your convenience and will allow you to compare your assessment to those of neighboring or similar type properties. In addition we have posted a Power Point presentation regarding the revaluation at the same website; www.nereval.com. If you feel you need an informal hearing and can demonstrate that the appraised value is in excess of market value as of December 31, 2016, please contact Northeast Revaluation at 401-737-0300 between the hours of 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM by March 3rd to schedule an appointment that is convenient for you. You can also schedule appointments online at www.nereval.com with the credentials found on the letter mailed to your property.

Mission Statement – An uncompromising commitment to excellence. The staff is dedicated to providing fair, accurate and timely assessments, exceptional public service and working together as a team for the betterment of our community.
The Tax Assessor’s Office is responsible for the annual assessment and preparation of regular and special tax rolls, which include real estate, motor vehicle excise, and business personal property. The General Laws of Rhode Island require the Assessor to insure that all assessments are fair and equitable. The office is an integral part of the Finance Department wherein property tax assessments are continuously maintained to insure that the Tax Collector has the most accurate and current information for the collection of taxes in a timely manner. The staff is responsible for all clerical functions performed in the update and maintenance of annual tax records, including reading and analyzing deeds, insuring that the Town’s tax maps are kept current, updating ownership records and mailing addresses, mailing of business personal property returns, processing of exemption applications and tax appeals, and providing various types of information to a multitude of customers. All Town fire districts utilize these assessed values.
Rhode Island State Laws mandate that cities and towns perform full revaluations of all classes of property every nine (9) years, and a statistical update of all property values every third and sixth year thereafter. The Town of Coventry will perform its 6 year statistical update and revaluation. It will be effective December 31, 2013 for the 2014 tax bill. Current assessments in Coventry are based upon the market as of December 31, 2010.
