Notice of Filing
Completed Assessment Roll
Notice is hereby given that the assessment roll for the Town of Crawford, County of Orange, State of New York for the year 2023 has been completed by the undersigned Assessor and a certified copy thereof will be filed in the office of the Town Clerk, located at 121 State Route. 302, Pine Bush, New York, on the 1st day of July, 2023, where it will remain open for public inspection.
Dated July 1, 2023
The Assessor is a local government official who is obligated by New York state law to maintain assessment at a uniform percentage of the market value each year. In order to maintain a uniform roll, each year your assessor will need to analyze all of the properties in the municipality; which may include ongoing physical inspections and also taking exterior pictures of parcels. The assessor also reviews every transfer of real property for accuracy.
The assessor also performs many other administrative functions, such as approving and maintaining property tax exemptions. Among the most common are the Senior Citizen STAR, Veteran, Agricultural, Non-Profit and Business exemptions. All exemptions are due in our office by March 1st. You may call our office directly for information and requirements. All subdivisions and lot-line changes are completed by the assessor.
The assessor is continually communicating with the public, answering questions and dealing with concerns raised by taxpayers.
Did you recently purchase a home? Is it your primary residence? Is your adjusted gross income less than $500,000?
If you answered yes to all of these questions, you may be eligible for a Basic STAR credit.
If you will be 65 years old by December 31, 2023, and your 2021 adjusted gross income is less than $93,200, you may be eligible for the Enhanced STAR credit.
Call: (518) 457-2036 or
Be Aware of Property Tax Appeal Company’s which are doing mass mailings trying to get homeowners to sign up to review your property assessment. These companies will charge a fee if you receive any reduction. In the fine print there is also a $75 fee for an appraisal and a $30 court filing fee. Sometimes a penalty fee is also added if you decide to withdraw your case. Please contact the Assessor’s Office before you sign anything. We will gladly review your assessment and property records with you and make any necessary adjustments. It’s what we do! Another unnecessary expense are companies offering to get you a copy of your deed. Again, contact the Assessor’s office and we will advise you how to do that. 845-744-3721.
