In 2019 the decision was made by the Chatham Town Board to conduct a 2022 reassessment of all real property in the town of Chatham in order to create fair and equitable assessments at 100% of market value. The reassessment will be conducted in accordance with Sections 301 and 305 of the NYS Real Property Tax Law.
Data collectors from Columbia County Real Property will begin field work in a couple of weeks by visiting each property in Chatham to update and photograph inventory. In some cases, this can be done from the public right of way. In other cases, it will be necessary for them to knock on the door before taking new measurements or accessing the rear of the property. Please note that visits by appointment are not possible. As a point of clarification: data collectors will not be entering buildings, this is an exterior inventory assessment.
Any questions should be directed to the Chatham Assessor. Phone: 518-392-2550 or Email:firstname.lastname@example.org
