Assessor's Office

Welcome,

As a homeowner in Mamakating, one of your concerns should be your property assessment. One of our concerns is that all assessments are fair and equitable in relationship to other properties in the town. As a property owner you have many responsibilities, which includes paying taxes.

Taxing jurisdictions must raise money to operate. The real property tax is one way that this is accomplished. Unfortunately, this system has many disadvantages. As Assessor's, we have no control over the budget process. We can only make sure that you pay your fair share of taxes. In order to maintain fair and equitable assessment, we need cooperation from property owners. The more information we have on the properties in Mamakating, and the market place, the more equitable the assessment will be.

Following, you will find information about assessment terminology, downloadable forms and important dates in the assessment year. There is also an application for STAR (School Tax Relief Exemption), which was passed into law as part of the 1997 budget adopted by the state. If your home is your primary residence, you may qualify for the basic exemption (*after filing the application and necessary documentation*). If you are a senior (65+) you may qualify for an even higher exemption amount. Please fill out the application and return it, along with the required documentation, to this office prior to March 1st of next year.

We welcome you and encourage you to stop in our office and review the information we have on record for your property, as well as other comparable properties. If you have any questions at all about any of the above information, or questions about the assessment process in general, please call me at 845-888-3015

Sincerely,
Amy Platt
