New STAR applicants will receive a credit in the form of a check directly from New York instead of receiving a school property tax exemption. The amount of your STAR benefit is the same regardless of how you receive it.
New Basic and Enhanced STAR applicants need to register with the New York State Tax Department to receive a STAR check. Please Click Here to learn more or to register with New York State.
If you have any questions, please call our office at (845)692-7811.
The property taxes you pay are based on the assessed value of your property. The primary function of this office is to maintain a fair and equitable assessment roll, which is the basis for the property taxes levied by the Town, County School Districts, Fire Districts and Library.
Our goal is to maintain a current assessment roll, where each assessed value represents a uniform percentage of value. This ensures no one pays more or less than their fair share of the overall tax levy.
Another function of the Assessor's Office is the administration of many exemptions for which property owners may qualify. Examples are:
All exemptions must be filed on or before March 1st.
Grievance Day is the 4th Tuesday in May. You may file a Complaint Form (RP524) anytime from May 1st through Grievance Day itself along with any supporting documentation required. An appointment is required and the time willl be given when the complaint form is filed.
All forms are available at this office or on the NYS website by visiting www.tax.ny.gov/forms
