Welcome to the Town of Cicero’s Office of Real Property Tax Services. We are happy to serve our community with respect and dignity. This department is also more commonly known as the Assessor’s Office, and we are responsible for placing value on all parcels within the town. The Town of Cicero contains properties such as: vacant, residential, agricultural, commercial and industrial parcels. We also process all exemptions, review and analyze sales data, manage the equalization rate, and help in defending the town in all assessment related court cases.
Some important dates to remember that are illustrated below are described as follows:
Taxable Status Date is the date on which ALL properties are assessed. The physical characteristics of each property are valued as of that date.
Tentative Roll Date is the date in which the assessor has completed the tax roll for that given year. This is when one should review their own assessment to ascertain if it is a FAIR MARKET VALUE of their property. If you do not agree with the value placed on your property by the assessor, you may make an appointment to have an informal review of your assessment with the assessor prior to Grievance Day. If you are dissatisfied with the results of your informal review, you may file a formal complaint on or before Grievance Day. These forms are available in the Assessor’s Office and online at the Office of Real Property Tax Services website, aka ORPTS (www.tax.ny.gov/pit/property/default.htm).
Final Roll Date is the date on which the town’s final assessment roll is filed. The Assessor is available by appointment throughout the year to discuss any of your assessment related concerns. We appreciate the issue of property tax and its congruence with assessments as it can be a complicated issue.
The deadline for any and ALL EXEMPTIONS IS MARCH 1st. There are NO EXCEPTIONS! All forms must be filed by March 1st of every given year.
The personnel in the Assessor’s office are dedicated to customer service and assessment fairness.
