About the Board

The Cumberland County Commissioners appoint a County Board of Assessment Review (BAR) to hear tax abatement appeals for those municipalities in Cumberland County that do not have a local board of assessment review.

Currently, the BAR hears appeals for the towns of:

  • Baldwin
  • Bridgton
  • Casco
  • Chebeague Island
  • Frye Island
  • Harpswell
  • Harrison
  • Naples
  • New Gloucester
  • Pownal
  • Sebago

The 6-member board is comprised of volunteers who serve without compensation.

The BAR is guided by Title 36 M.R.S.A. § 844-M.
