The Assessment Office maintains an inventory of all parcels of real property within the Town of Chili in order to establish an assessed value for the equitable distribution of property taxes.

In accordance with the rules and regulations set forth in New York State Real Property Tax Laws, the Town of Chili participates in an annual assessment program. Annual assessment involves the systematic analysis of all properties in the municipality each year to determine if they reflect current market values, making adjustments where necessary.

Changes in assessment values also occur for other reasons, such as a change in use, assessor review request, and/or issuance of a building permit for construction or demolition.

The Assessment Office is also responsible for the receipt and administration of partial tax exemptions, as allowed under the New York State Real Property Tax Laws (RPTL), and any locally adopted options to RPTLs, for property owners who meet certain eligibility requirements.
