While not as good as the previous year’s 1.5 percent increase, the $9,940,413,732 total was up from the net 2012 Grand List of $9,804,698,690, he said

The list is the sum of the net assessed value of all taxable property – real estate, motor vehicles, and personal property.

Motor vehicles and personal property are valued annually, while real estate is updated based on the market values determined as of the town’s revaluation date of Oct.1, 2010.  Increases in the grand list were in all three categories, Friia said.

The 1.25 percent increase in real estate assessment totals is a result of residential and commercial new construction and renovation activity that occurred within the past assessment year and indicates the continued strength of the Westport market, he said.

Motor vehicle had a 2.5 percent increase in assessment totals and personal property had a 4 percent increase in assessment totals, reflecting a continued increase in commercial business activity.

The current 2013 Grand List totals are: 

Real Estate $9,324,118,980

Motor Vehicle $319,602,814

Personal Property $296,691,938

Total $9,940,413,73

The Grand List will be used for fiscal year 2014-2015 town budget calculations. The above figures are subject to change pending the outcome of Board of Assessment Appeals hearings in March.

In connection with release of the Grand List, Friia listed the top 10 taxpayers in Westport:
