A MESSAGE FROM THE ASSESSOR’S OFFICE:
The Town of Wawayanda  has not had a reassessment since 2000.

Please be Aware of Property Tax Appeal Companies that are mass mailings Wawayanda homeowners, trying to get them to sign up to review your property assessment. The companies will charge a large fee if you receive any reduction. In the fine print there is also a $75 fee for an appraisal and a $30 court filing fee. Sometimes a penalty fee is also added if you decide to withdraw your case.

Please contact the Assessor’s Office before you sign anything. We have an open door policy.

We will gladly review your assessment and property records with you and make any necessary adjustments.  It’s what we do! 
Another unnecessary expense is companies offering to get you a copy of your deed for a large fee.
Again, contact the Assessor’s office. 99% of the time your deed is on file in our office. We can make a copy for you.

845-355-5700 ext. 9         Monday through Friday                 9 am to 4 pm

The Assessor's Office is responsible for the placement of fair and equitable assessments upon each and every property within the Town of Wawayanda. Every property within the town is periodically inspected. The data regarding the physical characteristics is gathered and maintained in our database. Items such as style, year built, size, age and condition are maintained. This information is updated any time there is a physical change in the property. In addition, it is the responsibility of this office to maintain and update all ownership information regarding each parcel. This office is also responsible for administering exemptions for wholly exempt purposes, veterans exemptions, agricultural exemptions, business improvement exemptions, aged exemptions, disability exemptions and the Enhanced Star Exemption for resident homeowners age 65 or older of one, two, and three family dwellings. In addition to these functions, it is also the duty of the Assessor's Office to annually provide for a grievance period where taxpayers can contest the assessment on their properties.
