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,
and the new trial roll will be available on the website and at Townhall on May 1st.
Grievance day is scheduled each year on the fourth Tuesday of May (May 22, 2018).
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.
