The Assessor's Office is responsible for assessing all town property and administering property tax exemptions. Assessment rolls are open for public inspection during weekday working hours. 


All property in the Town of Monroe is to be assessed at an equitable and uniform value in order to maintain fair, equitable, and uniform property values that accurately reflect changes in economic conditions and real estate values.

Assessors are interested only in fairly assessing property in their assessing unit. If, after reviewing the assessment data of comparable properties in your market area, your assessment appears to be in line but your tax bill seems too high, the assessor cannot change that. Complaints to the assessor or the Board of Assessment Review must be about how the property is assessed. Complaints about high taxes should be addressed directly to the taxing jurisdictions, such as the school district board, the county legislature, or the town board, who set the tax rates. The assessor does not set budgets or the tax rates resulting from the budgets.

In comparing properties to yours, it is important to remember that attributes such as location, style, age, and size are critical to the comparison process. You should review assessments of truly similar homes in the same general market area and make your adjustments to the assessments of those homes to arrive at an indicated value for your home. If you are utilizing a comparable property's assessed value per square foot of living area (SFLA), after subtracting the land value first, to make a case for over assessment, be sure to use those derived from similar homes in similar market areas and of very similar SFLA. Otherwise, your results will be skewed and will not prove your case.

STAR

*PLEASE NOTE THE STAR PROGRAM CHANGES*
As a result of recent law changes, some homeowners will receive a STAR check directly from New York State instead of receiving a school property tax exemption. The amount of your benefit will be the same regardless of how you receive it.

Beginning with the 2016-2017 school year, new STAR applicants will need to register with the Tax Department to receive a STAR check. 

Current STAR exemption recipients
-- Current Basic and Enhanced STAR exemption recipients will keep their exemption as long as they contiune to own their current home.
-- Current Enhanced STAR exemption recipients who are not enrolled in the Income Verification Program must continue to file a renewal application with their local assessor each year.

*The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance has developed a web based registration application, and phone registration for the STAR Check program. To register or to ask questions please contact the State at (518) 457-2036 or online at www.tax.ny.gov/star/
