Welcome to the City of Manchester
Assessor’s Office Website
This site provides an overview of important programs serving Manchester taxpayers. This site also explains the assessment process and duties carried out by the Assessor’s. The programs and duties of our office are established by state statutes and local ordinances.
Abatements and Appeals, Exemptions and Credits and Online Property Information are popular topics covered on our website. From here, you can download popular applications available in our office and find important information on these programs.
While this website enhances our ability to serve the public, it does not in any way replace the personal service provided at our office in downtown Manchester.
