The Assessment Department is responsible for placing an assessment on each parcel of land and all real property in the town for the purpose of equalization of the tax base. The Town Assessor administers the assessment roll in accordance with the New York State Real Property Tax Law, the Code of the Town of Seneca Falls, and Rules Regulations promulgated by the State Board of Real Property Services.

The Assessment Department maintains inventory of all parcels in order to establish an assessed value for the equitable distribution of property taxes. The assessment roll and property inventory data is maintained using the Real Property System (RPS V4) developed by the NYS Office of Real Property Tax Services. The Town Assessor is appointed by the Town Board and must be qualified as required by the NYS Real Property Tax Law.

Assessment changes may also be made due to change in use, and/or issuance of a building permit for new construction, remodeling or demolition.
