imagesImportant Notice from the Board of Assessors

Judy Sambor, a contractor who has been hired by the Board of Assessors, will be traveling throughout the Town of Dover from May through the beginning of December for the purpose of measuring and inspecting properties that have not been visited within the last ten years; properties for which building, plumbing, gas, or electrical permits have been issued; or properties that have undergone a physical change since June 30, 2018.  For your protection, please confirm that she is driving a 2009 gray Toyota RAV4 with Massachusetts registration number 6WL223.

The accuracy of the data collected in the field is critical to the valuation process and will help to guarantee that all taxpayers are responsible for only their fair share of the expenses of administering the town.

Your cooperation and assistance during these inspections is appreciated, and we apologize for any inconvenience you may encounter as a result of Ms. Sambor’s visit.  If you have any questions, please contact the Assessors’ office at 785-0032, ext. 223 or ext. 241.  For further confirmation of Ms. Sambor’s identity on a weekend, you may also telephone the Dover Police at 785-1130.  If you receive a card at your home, please call or email the office ( to schedule an inspection.
