Office of NYS Real Property Taxes



The Assessor’s Office welcomes your inquiries regarding assessment and real property issues. The records of assessments and inventory are open to the public, and may be inspected at the office during regular business hours.



Functions of the Assessor’s Office


The Assessor is an appointed position. The Assessor is the official who estimates the market value of the real property within the town. This assessment is one component used in the computation of real property taxes.

Assessments are based on an analysis of sales properties within the town. Acomparable study of these sales is carefully analyzed to determine value factors for each attribute of the property, and these values are then applied to all properties for a fair and equitable assessment. The purpose of implementing this analysis periodically is to assure that property owners are paying their fair share of the tax burden.


Assessment offices are also responsible for the administration of many different types of real property exemption programs that can offer some tax relief when specific requirements are met. More information on such exemptions can be accessed through the links below.


Tax maps, property inventory, and other reference materials are available in the assessor’s office and may be reviewed by the public upon request.
