Real Property Tax BillsIf you are a new property owner in our area, you should know when to expect to receive property tax bills for your property. The Real Property Tax law does not allow for the forgiving of taxes, interest, or penalties due to non-receipt by the property owner of a bill.
Property TransferSometimes, when property is transferred, new ownership information does not get to the tax collector prior to mailing of tax bills. When this happens, the prior owner or their escrow company may receive the tax bill and fail to forward it to the new owner. If you are a new property owner, look for your property tax bill. If it is not delivered within the schedule, call the tax collector or our office at (585) 396-4382. We will provide a telephone number and contact person.
SPLITIf you have purchased a portion of a property, commonly referred to as a SPLIT, be aware that depending on the time of year the purchase was made, the tax bill may be prepared in the original owner’s name for the entire amount of taxes due on the property as a whole. In order for the tax collector to prepare separate bills, you as the property owner must make a request in writing to the town or city assessor. The assessor will then create an apportionment sheet for the tax collector, and the tax collector will create corrected tax bills.
