The Assessor is a local government official, certified by New York State. As of March, the first, of any calendar year, and on an annual basis, the Assessor is responsible for determining ownership and inventory information (the taxable status date). On May the First of the same calendar year, a list of separately assessed parcels is published as a tentative assessment roll. On July the First (same calendar year), after the Board of Assessment Review meets to hear complaints filed on the tentative assessment roll, the Assessor files a final assessment roll. On an annual basis, final assessment rolls are posted on the official website for the Town of Franklin.

The Assessor also determines tax exemption status where applications have been filed. Generally, tax exemption applications and/or renewal applications are due on or before taxable status date. An extensive list of the exemptions for New York State is maintained by the NYS Department of Taxation and Finance.

If I can answer any questions you may have regarding the real property tax or assessments, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Jim Basile,
