To further clarify the relationship between the Town Assessor’s property value Assessments and your Taxes, here is a document produced by the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance which I hope puts this issue to rest.
Your assessment could increase, and your tax bill could decrease

Your assessment could decrease and your tax bill could increase.
Due to the New York State, County and CDC guidelines, our first in person meeting will be held in the Town Board Auditorium /Gymnasium and seating capacity is limited to 35, so that there is 3′ of distance between each chair. Unfortunately, this is the largest space we have. As always, there will be two Privileges of the Floor and we ask citizens to keep their comments to 2 minutes.
The Comprehensive Plan Review Committee will hold a Public Hearing on the Draft Comprehensive Plan on Monday, June 28, 2021 at 7 PM in the Town Hall.
