Assessor

Local government derives its primary financial support through a tax on real property. The responsibility for compiling information on property ownership, determining valuations, and preparing the annual tax assessment roll is placed with the office of Assessor. This office was originally authorized by Article 29 of the New York State Constitution of 1777, and the duties of the office were further stated by “An Act Relative to the Duties and Privileges of Towns” passed in 1813, which allowed for the election of three to five assessors within each town.

Throughout the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries the Town of Amherst was served by a board of three Assessors. These officials worked together to prepare the assessment roll and conferred with the Tax Collector during the period of tax collection. Originally, the Assessors served for one year, beginning their term immediately following elections which were held at the annual town meeting in March. The term of office was later extended to three years, with one Assessor elected each year. In 1934, under mandate of the Town Law of 1932, the office of Assessor was made appointive with the term of office extended to six years. In 1969 the board of three Assessors was replaced by a single full-time Assessor, aided by an office staff. The Amherst Government Organization Law of 1976 placed the Assessor within the executive branch of local government.

The listing below represents Town of Amherst Assessors dating from 1819 to present. The listings were provided by the Amherst Town Clerk's Office. Any errors or ommissions should be reported to David J. Willer in the Office of Information Technology.
