Lister and Assessor Resources

Your district advisor will strive to answer all of your questions. In most cases, please contact your district advisor first with any questions or concerns. We have also collected a list of resources and additional information for listers and assessors, municipal officials, and taxpayers that may be helpful. Please contact the District Advisor Help Desk with any questions you may have.
