Beginning with the 2014 tax roll, the property tax rate classification
will be changed per RI General Law §44-5-74.1
which was signed into law by the Governor on July 17, 2013. The new
system will classify property with three or less units as residential
and five or more units as commercial. Four unit properties will be
classified as residential if they are owner occupied and as commercial
if they are not owner occupied. The Assessor's Office sent an owner occupancy declaration form to all owner's of four unit
properties in October 2013. The form must have been filed with
the Assessor's office by January 31, 2014 to take effect on the July
2014 billing cycle. This form must be filed annually and will
not be mailed in the future. The application is available in the
Assessor's Office and on this website under the "Forms" section.
