Information regarding the new Star Rebate filing for 2017

Beginning in 2016, all new home owners will receive their STAR discount as a rebate from the State of New York, rather than as an exemption on their school taxes. If you’ve previously had a STAR discount administered by the Town Assessor’s Office, your STAR discount will continue to be an exemption on your taxes.

New legislation requires all homeowners receiving a Basic STAR exemption to register with the NYS Tax Department in order to receive the exemption in 2014 and subsequent years.  All basic STAR recipients will receive registration instructions by mail.  

The 2016 Final Town Tax Roll has been completed and is available for inspection in the Town Clerk’s Office during regular hours. The rolls will also be available in the Town Assessor’s office during normal business hours, as well as from 10 AM to 2 PM on Saturday, May 13th, and until 6 PM on Tuesday, May 16th.

If you need help reading the Roll or understanding its abbreviations, the Assessor is usually available to help (call for an appointment: 235-9907).

Using either of these methods can help you decide if your assessment is fair or needs review. If review is your choice, go to http://www.tax.ny.gov/pdf/publications/orpts/grievancebooklet.pdf or telephone your Assessor.
