Assistant Assessor

Jefferson County posted 10/24/2016

General: The Town of Lorraine and Town of Rodman are in a Shared Assessor Program.  As such, the position requires the duties of Town Assessor for both Towns.  Both Towns are made up of approximately 720 parcels set in a rural part of Southern Jefferson County on the western edge of the Tug Hill. 
 
Duties:  The assessor is obligated by New York State law to maintain assessments at a uniform percentage of market value each year. The assessor signs an oath to this effect when certifying the tentative assessment roll -- the document containing each property assessment. The physical description (or inventory) and value estimate of every parcel is required to be kept current. In order to maintain a uniform roll, each year your assessor will need to analyze all of the properties in the municipality to determine which assessments need to be changed.
Where assessments need to be changed, in some cases, the assessor will be able to increase or decrease the assessments of a neighborhood or group of properties by applying real estate market trends to those properties. This is possible only when the assessments to be changed are at a uniform level other than the municipality's stated level of assessment. In other cases, the assessor will need to conduct physical re-inspections for reappraisals of properties. Every assessing unit should be keeping all assessments at a fair and uniform level every year.
The assessor performs many other administrative functions, such as inspecting new construction and major improvements to existing structures. This ensures that the record of each property's physical inventory is current and that the appropriate improvements are assessed.
The assessor also approves and keeps track of property tax exemptions. Among the most common are the senior citizen, School Tax Relief (STAR), veterans, agricultural, and business exemptions.
The Real Property System is a computer software package (created and maintained by ORPTS) to assist assessment administration functions. It is available to assessors who have the necessary computer equipment, and allows them to electronically maintain the assessment roll and related records. Corrections to State form RP-5217 can also be sent to the State Board electronically. The Real Property System also includes computer-assisted mass appraisal programs for value estimation and assessment updates.
Legally, the assessor must be present at all public hearings of the Board of Assessment Review (BAR). The BAR may request the assessor to present evidence in support of tentative assessments being grieved by taxpayers. After meeting in private without the assessor, the BAR makes its decisions and orders any appropriate changes to the assessment roll before it becomes final. If assessment reductions are denied by the BAR, and property owners appeal to Small Claims Assessment Review, the assessor prepares evidence for those hearings.
The assessor reviews every transfer of real property for accuracy, including the basic information on the buyer, seller, and sale price. Assessment records are updated, and any unusual conditions affecting the transfer are also verified. Results are recorded on form RP-5217 at the real estate closing. The assessor makes corrections to this form.
ORPTS requires assessors to file an annual report on assessment changes. ORPTS also "equalizes" property assessments to a common full (market) value in each municipality.
Additionally, the Assessor is expected to make themselves readily available to the residents.

Requisites: 
• Minimum qualification standards as specified by 20 NYCRR 8188. 
• The basic certification training requirements are prescribed in 20 NYCRR §8188 Rules for Real Property Tax Administration.
• Computer skills (Windows operating systems, Microsoft Office), Excel, email,
  Relevant software to conduct assessor duties. 
• Good communication skills to communicate clearly verbally and in writing.  
• Present a professional attitude when working with the Town Board and residents.  

Salary: ~ 6,500 per Town     

Benefits: NYS and Local Retirement

Tentative start date:  ASAP

Anyone interested please contact Supervisor, Gary Stinson at (315) 232-2522.
