Property Valuation

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.

Exemption Administration 

Another function of the Assessor's Office is the administration of many exemptions for which property owners may qualify. Examples are:

  • STAR (Basic or Enhanced)
  • Veterans
  • Low-Income Senior or Disabled Persons
  • Commercial Exemption
  • Agricultural
  • Clergy
  • Non-Profit

All exemptions must be filed on or before March 1st.
