Land Information is in charge of making address changes for assessment and taxation purposes. It is important to remember to send an address change form if you are building a new home and intend to reside at that new location by the end of the year. The Land Information Office will send the assessment notice and the real estate bill to the previous location if it does not receive an address change form associated with a new building. This could result in delays of retrieving documents and the possibility of penalties associated with late payments.
