What is the role of an assessor?
The Assessor is a Constitutional office in the Town of Lumberland, and is an appointed position with a six-year term. The function of this office is to provide the town with an equitable assessment roll each year.
In that pursuit, there are a multitude of laws which must be followed:
Primarily, the Real Property Tax Law.
The valuation of approximately 3,000 parcels in the town involves tracking each parcel as respects condition, construction, alterations and inventory items.
The property owner’s taxes are then based on that value.
The Assessor is present during Grievance Day, and prepares for all cases of appeals, including court cases.
Another facet in the preparation of the roll is the administration of the various exemptions allowed by local and state government.
The Assessor administers all forestry, Basic & Enhanced Star, Senior, Veteran and Not-For-Profit Exemption applications.
The Assessment Roll must be filed in a timely manner in accordance with various State Laws, Rules and Regulations. This includes preparation and filing of all legal notices and notifications to property owners, as well as the Assessor’s Annual Report with NYS Office of Real Property Services.
