It is the
duty of the Assessor′s Office to establish values of ALL real
property within the Town of Goshen (including Village of Goshen,
parts of Village of Chester and parts of Village of
Florida) in accordance with Real Property Tax Laws of NYS. All
exemptions are administered by the Assessor's Office, e.g.
veteran, senior citizen, agricultural, physically disabled
persons with limited income, business incentive, volunteer
firefighters/ambulance workers and wholly exempt properties.
Other functions of the Assessor′s Office include processing of
real property sales, tax escrow account maintenance, address
changes and maintain and update inventory on all properties.
A MESSAGE FROM THE ASSESSOR’S OFFICE:
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.
