January 1st : Town and County taxes become due, payable to the Town Tax Collector.

March 1st - Taxable Status Date: The Assessor is required by New York State law to value property as it is on this date. A partially completed building will receive a partial assessment based on its estimated percentage of completion as of March 1st. If you suffer a loss to your property (ex: fire, demolition) after this date you will see no reduction for that loss on forthcoming roll. Exemption forms must be filed by this date also.

May 1st - Tentative Roll: The tentative roll is a list, in property I.D. order, of all Real property in the Town as of Taxable Status Date. Some of the information on these parcels includes owner's names, locations, acreage, property class, assessed values, and exemptions.

4th Thursday in May - Grievance Day: All complaints about assessments and exemptions must be received no later than this day. If you fail to file your complaint by grievance day you will not be able to file again until the next year. The Board of Assessment Review begins its hearings on this date.

July 1st - Final Roll: Any changes made to the Tentative Roll by the Board of Assessment Review will show on this roll.

September 1st: School taxes become due, payable to the School Tax Collector.
