Plan Ahead

Check your property assessment

In most towns across New York, assessors publish the tentative assessment roll on the town or county website in the beginning of May. The tentative assessment roll includes the property assessment, the assessor’s estimate of the market value of the property (the amount your property could sell for), and exemption information. You should review the tentative assessment roll annually.
