County Extends Contract with Town of Covert to Provide Assessment Services

Tuesday, August 7, 2018

The Legislature, without dissent, approved a four-year agreement (through the 2022 assessment roll) to continue to provide assessment services to the Town of Covert (Seneca County.)  The joint agreement is authorized under New York State Real Property Tax Law and General Municipal Law.  Tompkins County has provided appraisal services, exemption services, and assessment services to the Town since 2014.  The resolution notes that the agreement provides residents of the Town of Covert access to a full-time assessment office while still paying for a part-time assessor salary, and that the agreement will further the coordination and cooperation between government entities in furtherance of Governor Cuomo’s agenda of increasing municipal shared services.
