Assist taxpayers with completing their exemption applications and determine their eligibility.

The Assessor is available throughout the year to discuss assessment related topics.

Exemption Information:

The Town of Queensbury’s Assessors’ Office annually processes 10,667 property tax exemptions. Renewal applications are mailed in the fall every year for return by March 1st. Due to the large volume of exemption forms mailed to property owners that require return, review and in many cases necessitate follow-up phone calls, we firmly adhere to the State legislated March 1st exemption deadline for ALL exemption applications. As a public service we attempt to send second notices and even call as many people as we can to remind them that the exemptions are due, but staffing and time constraints limit our opportunity to reach everyone.

Important Dates to Remember Affecting the Assessment Process:

March 1 (Taxable Status Date) – deadline for all exemptions to be filed with the Assessor. Property improvements & condition, as of this date, will be the basis for the coming assessment cycle.

May 1st Tentative Assessment Roll is filed containing all values and exemptions for the tax year. Change of assessment notices are mailed this week.

4th Tuesday in May (Grievance Day) – Board of Assessment Review meets to hear all complaints regarding assessments.

July 1st Final Assessment Roll filed. Town, County and School taxes are based on this roll’s information.
