Assessing

The mission of the City of Calais Assessor's Office is to maintain fair and equitable assessed valuations and accurate ownership information that are the basis of the allocation of municipal property tax burden in accordance with state law. The Office maintains extensive information on all properties in Calais which is readily available for inspection or review by taxpayers and the public. Informational requests related to property taxes, tax policy or law, tax exemptions, etc. are processed as quickly as possible.
