2023 Valuation Update Information:

Bath completed a full city-wide revaluation, with values as of April 1, 2019. For a summary of the revaluation please see  our Revaluation Summary page. In 2023, we will be updating 2019 property values to ensure the City's real property remains, on average, valued for tax purposes at or near 100% of its market valuation. Without such an update, State of Maine reimbursements to the City for various property tax exemptions will be reduced by 22% in 2023. In 2022, Bath received nearly $3.1 million in State reimbursements for property tax exemptions; a reduction in reimbursement would lead to property tax increases for all Bath taxpayers.
