The real property tax is a tax based on the value of real property. Real property is composed of real estate, the physical parcel of land and all improvements permanently attached, and the interests, benefits and rights often referred to as the "bundle of rights" inherent with ownership.
We ask that you read all property tax related documents you receive in the mail, bookmark this page and check back from time to time, assist your local assessor and tax receiver whenever requested to do so, and take advantage of any property tax exemptions, including STAR, for which you may be eligible. With the help of all involved in real property tax administration and you, we hope you'll understand how the property tax works. If you have any property tax or property tax related questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. For questions about other types of taxes, see resources for other taxes.
The Tax Commission does not establish individual property assessments, collect current or delinquent property taxes, and is not involved in the selling of property tax liens or the foreclosure process. These functions, if applicable, are carried out individually by towns, cities and villages throughout the county.
