12/09/2021: As you may have noticed the Homestead and Veteran exemptions have been reduced on your tax bill.  Instead of receiving the full exemption amount, Bowdoinham can only offer 91% of the exemption amount.  The highest the Board of Assessors could declare for the Town’s FY2022 certified ratio was 91%. The certified ratio is determined by Maine Revenue Service through analysis of assessed values and sales data.

We apologize for the inconvenience this delay has caused. We know this has been very discouraging for everyone and we thank you for your patience.
