The Town of Pelham Board appoints the Town Assessor for a six-year term. The Assessor’s office prepares assessments of real property, commercial and residential, within the Town to annually maintain a 100% level of assessment that is current with market conditions. The assessments are updated every June 1; the date by which the tentative assessment rolls are issued for publication to residents.

The Town Assessor welcomes meetings with residents to explain the assessment process and review assessment concerns. After June 1 publication of the assessment roll and up to Grievance Day, residents can appeal the assessment of their property to the Board of Assessment Review, a town government entity. This board reviews assessment complaints (grievances), deliberates and notifies the property owner and Town Assessor of their final determination. The Town Assessor must file the Final Assessment Roll in September of each year pursuant to state law.

The Town Assessor receives and processes S.T.A.R., Veterans and Senior exemption applications based on applicable laws. The Town of Pelham tax maps for all residential and commercial properties are available at Town Hall for review.
