The Columbia County Data Collectors will be going to every property to verify the inventory that the assessor has on file currently is up to date, taking a couple of photos if needed; Data Collectors will have marked CC plates and will be wearing badges, they will NOT be going into your homes. We will be updating here on Town Website when the need arises.
There will be a reassessment of all real property as a result of a decision by the Town of Germantown to create fair and equitable assessment at 100% of market value. It is done pursuant to Sections 301 and 305 of the NYS Real Property Tax Law. It is the intent of the Town to complete the reassessment in accordance with Section 1573 of RPTL, rules and procedures in order to qualify for State Aid.
The first step of this process will begin in October of 2019 with data collectors doing field work by updating or verifying the inventory records and photos of each parcel in the Town.
Ralph DelPozzo, Assessor, Town of Germantown
