The Town uses the TRIO software program to track all assessments. Through TRIO all tax accounts have an individual tax card that outlines exactly how the account is calculated. Copies of these can be viewed at the Town Office during normal office hours or can be requested via email or fax. Send an email request to Toni, Diane, or Carol using the emails on the home page or fax request to 422-6705.
The Board of Selectmen are also the Board of Assessor's and have chosen for many years, to hire an Assessing Agent. This is someone certified to compile assessments, prepare tax records and review property accounts. The Town of Hancock's Assessing Agent is Marc A. Perry.

Marc has also been a practicing Realtor in the Mount Desert Island (MDI) and Downeast Maine real estate markets since 2002. Marc says, "My real estate experience affords me another perspective to better understanding market value, market trends and property information/data collection, which makes me a more effective Assessor".
Marc is a graduate of Univ. of South Florida in Tampa (1992) with a degree in Criminal Justice having worked for U.S. Customs Service (Enforcement) as well as U.S. Attorney Office (Tampa), before finding his way into telecommunication sales as a commercial account executive and ultimately real estate sales and assessing.
