Comprehensive Property Information

Comprehensive Property InformationThe Town of Amherst has been a leader in providing access to online property information for nearly 20 years. In 2007, Amherst was awarded a New York State grant to further develop its online property information. Through this grant the Town of Amherst developed the Comprehensive Property Information (CPI) portal. The CPI provides detailed property information (i.e., building type, square footage, year built, etc.), assessments and taxes, an Assessment Challenge tool, a two-year historical breakdown of tax bills, true tax versus tax bill amount (accounting for exemption savings), and a tax analysis detailing the Town, County and School tax levies.

The Town IT Department works closely with the Town's Assessor and Town Clerk / Receiver of Taxes to ensure the online portal continues to provide valuable and up-to-date information. Please follow this link for tax bills online.

Please visit the Assessor's Office for information regarding the 2018 Assessment Roll, challenging your assessment, property sales, exemptions (including the STAR program), forms & worksheets, tax rates and frequestly asked questions (FAQs) regarding assessments and taxes.
