Beginning with the 2014 tax roll, the property tax rate classification will be changed per RI General Law 44-5-74.1 (link to statute) 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.  Please contact the Assessor's Division if you have any questions.
