Why did the Assessor raise my taxes?

The Assessor cannot and does not raise or lower your taxes. The assessor can only assess the value of your home.


Taxes are impacted by the Village, Town, County and School budgets. If you feel your taxes are too high, you should be speaking with your village board members, your town board members, your county legislature and your school board members.
