Thank you for visiting the Tompkins County Department of Assessment. This office was consolidated in 1970 to provide the highest possible service at the lowest possible cost to the residents of Tompkins County. Our office is dedicated to ensuring that all properties are assessed at a uniform percentage of market value.

We highly encourage all current and prospective property owners to review the Real Property Tax Cycle flow chart in order to be aware of all the important legal dates in our yearly process.

As always, our office is here to assist you in any way we can.
