Village Clerk, Jamie Blot is also the Village Assessor. The Village of Colonie has its own assessment unit, separate from the Town of Colonie. The taxable status date for the Village of Colonie is January 1st of each year. We receive several deeds each year and review them for any changes that may need to be made regarding boundaries, parcel sizes and transferring of ownership. The assessor also reviews any building permits filed before January 1st of each year and determines if the permit adds value to the assessment of the parcel and adjusts the amounts accordingly. A copy of such permits is kept with the tentative assessment roll for that year. A tentative assessment roll is made and produced by February 1st each year. Any changes to existing parcels, the business owner or resident receives a letter stating such changes. The Village of Colonie holds a grievance night, every year, the third Tuesday in February from 4:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. The final assessment roll is made and produced by April 1st each year.
The Tentative and Final Assessment Rolls are indexed by roll sections, starting with roll section 1, and then alphabetically by street address, within each roll section.
KEEP IN MIND: exemptions shown on the Village of Colonie tentative and final assessment rolls are subject to change.
