About Your Assessment

Property Assessments

As part of the ongoing Annual Reassessment Program in the Town of Batavia, the Assessor’s office will be reviewing and analyzing the assessments of each property in the Town.  According to the Real Property Tax Law, all property assessments must be valued at the same uniform percentage. The Town of Batavia assessments are at a uniform percentage of 100% of market value.

Important Dates in the Assessment Cycle

March 1st: Taxable Status Date - Deadline for filing exemption applications

May 1st: Tentative Assessment Roll is filed

4th Tuesday in May: Grievance Day - Board of Assessment Review meets to hear all properly filed complaints regarding assessments

July 1st: Final Assessment Roll is filed - The assessed value for each property on the final roll is used for tax purposes for the next year

RESOURCES AVAILABLE

    Beginning March

                Reports: Residential sales and property inventories will be published and available for inspection at the Assessor's Office in the Town Hall.

    Yearly

                Internet Access: The assessment and sales information are available year round on this webpage.   

    • Verify property information
    • Review inventory data on an individual property
    • Review current sales information
    • Analyze sales information about similar properties

    In comparing similar sales it is important to remember that location, style, age and size are critical to the comparison process. For example: if you purchased your home for $200,000 on a particular street or neighborhood DO NOT look for homes that sell for $150,000 in other neighborhoods or compare a 5 year old house with a 50 year old house.

    INFORMAL REVIEW PROCESS

    The Assessor's Office will continue to offer property owners an Informal Review Process. If you feel your assessment is incorrect then you must provide the Assessor with reasonable information, based on market sales, that supports your opinion of market value.

    To schedule an informal review call: 585-343-1729 ext 207

    THE GOAL OF THE ASSESSOR’S OFFICE IS TO DETERMINE THE FAIR AND EQUITABLE ASSESSMENT FOR YOUR PROPERTY.
