Assessment

Townwide Reassessment Has Been Postponed to 2023

The Town of Irondequoit today announced the postponement of the 2022 Reassessment Project until 2023. It has become clear additional time is needed to responsibly inform property owners regarding assessment changes and the potential tax impact. Given the recent rise in inflation across the area, the town does not want changes in assessment adding extra stress to property owners. The Assessor’s Office will continue to keep the residents informed about the project.

“Although this reassessment was already in progress prior to my taking office, at the recommendation of the Assessor and after discussion with the Town Board, we have decided to hold off,” said Supervisor Rory Fitzpatrick. “Current circumstances were taken into account, and I felt that, for our residents, this is just not the right time to proceed.”

Residents are welcome to contact the Assessor’s Office via phone (585-336-6055) or email ( assessor@irondequoit.gov ) with any questions or concerns.

Exemption Information

 

STAR Exemption (School Tax Relief)

New property owners can register for a STAR Credit at NYS Dept. of Taxation and Finance

Due to new legislation, New York State Dept. of Taxation and Finance (NYSTF) is changing the STAR exemption program to a credit program. This means that new property owners filing for STAR benefits will receive a check directly from New York State instead of receiving a property tax exemption. Please see the information below to see how this may affect Basic and Enhanced STAR exemptions.

Enhanced STAR

Provides an increased benefit for the primary residences of senior citizens (age 65 and older) with qualifying incomes - $93,200* or less for the 2023-2024 school year. *Subject to change.  

Property owners who currently receive an Enhanced STAR exemption on their school tax bill will continue to receive the benefit as an exemption on their school tax bill.
