The function of the Assessor’s office is to maintain a fair and equitable tax value on all real property within the Town. We administer this function by following New York State Real Property Law under the auspices of the Broome County Real Property Tax Service and the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance. To maintain a fair and equitable assessment, we constantly review our records, updating inventory when necessary. We continue this process by visiting new construction and recording physical changes to existing properties on our property record cards. Our reference to inventory includes changes to square feet living area (additions), decks, porches, sheds, in-ground swimming pools, garages, etc.
Tax rates are applied to Taxable Value (Assessed Value minus exemptions) and are set by the various taxing jurisdictions which results in your property and school tax bill. School tax bills are sent by and paid to the school tax collector. Property tax bills are sent by and are paid to the Broome County Real Property Tax Office. Please direct questions regarding taxes to the applicable person or office.
Please call for answers to your questions during office hours or leave a message, and we will return your call as soon as possible.
