Annual Assessments

Each year every parcel is reassessed and the new tentative assessment is mailed to the property owners May 1. The tentative assessments are available online, in the Assessor's office, at the Town Clerk's office and at the Putnam County Office of Real Property for review. The Town of Southeast maintains their assessments at 100% of market value with a valuation date of July 1 of the prior year. After the period to hear grievances has passed, the final assessment roll is effective July 1.

Grievance Procedure

Property owners have the right to a review of their assessment for the current tentative roll completed by the Assessor.
  • Grievance applications, with documentation supporting your requested assessed value, must be filed in the Town of Southeast with the Assessor or the Board of Assessment Review.
  • The complaint must be filed on or before the first day the Board of Assessment review meets to hear grievances (being the 4th Tuesday in May).
