Land Values By County
Here are the responses to our requests for a simple comparison sheet of rates in towns in each county. After receiving numerous questions from taxpayers on how land assessments are made, we asked for a County Land Value chart assessors use to do assessments in each county. The purpose? The more information we can provide to taxpayers the better they can understand how the system works. This in return could make the job of the local assessor easier because they have educated taxpayers at the informal meetings. As you can see, most had no such information that they could or would share. The responses were oddly all very similar. If town links are not listed here please see: https://www.taxmypropertyfairly.com/resources/find-your-town-assessor
Albany County - "There is no County Land Value chart. All local jurisdictions have their own land schedules. You will need to contact them individually to see if you can obtain the information you are looking for."
Allegany County - "You would need to request land tables from the towns. The towns create and maintain those tables."
Cayuga County - "No such thing exists."
Franklin County - "There is no County Land Value Chart. All land value questions need to be directed to each Town’s Assessor. There are no 2 alike because each Town is different and the land values change depending on when a town does a reval. The link below is a list of the Town Assessors and phone numbers."
Fulton County - "Please be advised that Fulton County, as well as a majority of Counties, do not perform the assessment function. Therefore, there is no County Land Value Chart. Each town, depending on when the town does a reval, develops their own land values based on their own sales. This information is then typically placed in whatever valuation software being used."
