The New York State Real Property computer system makes it possible to
include photographs of all properties.  We hope this will help in making better
comparisons and fair assessments. The Town of Knox is in the process of
photographing properties to include them on the tax roll.  As of July 2015,
about one third of our properties have been photographed. The effort is being
made to complete the process of photographing properties during the next
year.  We will try not to be intrusive, but you may see the Assessor or Data
Collectors taking photographs of properties in the town.  We will appreciate
your patience while we complete the process.

Each year, Exemption Renewal Notices
should be received from the Assessor in the mail in the first week of January,
and be returned to the Assessor by March 1.

Assessment change notices should be received from the Assessor in the mail
in the first week of May.

The Roll for 2015, as of July 1st will be available at the Knox Town Hall.
Please see the Town Clerk during office hours,
or contact the Assessor.

If you feel that your assessment is unfair, you should contact the Assessor.
The Final Roll for 2015 will be online and available at Knox Town Hall

Grievance day is scheduled each year on
the fourth Tuesday of May.
The Board of Assessment review hears grievances from 4 to 8 pm at the
Knox Town Hall on that day.

If you want to present a grievance, you should come prepared with documentation of your
position.  This could be a list of other properties which are similar to yours or an appraisal.  The
Assessor can supply you with more information on how to file a grievance.
