The Assessor of
the Town of Avon is obligated by New York State law to maintain
assessments at a uniform percentage of market value. The Assessor
is responsible for establishing and maintaining assessments,
retain and updating inventory records, processing and storing
transfers/sales, tax maps and administering exemptions. We
receive copies of all permits issued by the Department of
Planning & Zoning. This information is recorded on our
computers and used to update our property record cards.
The Assessor prepares
the Assessment Roll each year that lists information for each
property in the Town. When the Assessment Roll is finalized
each year it becomes the base upon which annual real property
tax levies are derived. An accurate Assessment Roll is vital
to the delivery of public services and maintaining the fiscal
strength of local government.
of the Assessor's Office is the administration of many exemptions
for which property owners may quality. A few of the exemptions
- Low-income Senior
- Low-income Disabled
All exemption applications can be picked up in our office,
downloaded here or on the NYS Department of Tax & Finance
They must be filed in our office by March 1st.
NEW FOR 2016: Due to new legislation, NYS Tax &
Finance Department is changing the STAR exemption program.
Property owners with existing Basic Star or
Enhanced Star exemptions will continue to receive the exemption
on their school bill. However, new property owners as of
3/1/2015 or homeowners who have never had the exemption
before, will not be part of the Star Check Program (it will
not be applied toward your school tax bill - you will now
receive a check directly from the state). To register for
the Star Check Program (Basic or Enhanced) please call NYS
Tax and Finance at 518-457-2036 or visit www.tax.ny.gov
