It is our goal to treat all customers (taxpayers) in a fair and equitable manner while assessing each property at a uniform percent of value.   The Town of Newstead is currently at 85% Equalization Rate.

2020 Revaluation of all properties in the Village of Akron and Town of Newstead has begun.  Change of assessment notices will go out early 2020.

If you feel your assessment is incorrect, please make an appointment with the Assessor to discuss your concerns.  If you are still not satisfied, you may go before the Board of Assessment Review on Grievance Day (the fourth Tuesday of May each year) to plead your case.

Please call for an appointment (542-4574) beginning on May 1st and submit the following application to the Town Assessor prior to your appointment.

The information provided is intended to assist you, but it is not meant to replace the personal service we pride ourselves on providing.
