Assessment Department


Welcome to the Assessor's Office

This summer the Town will be updating property records with current photographs of houses from the street.  If you see the town vehicle (Silver Ford Escape) moving slowly through your neighborhood don’t be surprised.  We will not be entering your property or knocking at the door, simply getting a picture from the street.
July 12th is the day that has been set aside for photographing properties around the lake.  We will be in a pontoon boat. We won’t be entering the property, just getting an updated picture.  Hopefully it won’t be raining!


The Assessor will:

  • Set up an appointment to meet anyone who is not physically able to come to the Town Office to complete required forms.
  • Calculate the assessed value (or market value) of homes within the Town of Canandaigua
  • Provide the following publicly available information about a property upon request:
    • Owner's name(s)(current and previous)
    • Assessed value of home
    • Year Built
    • Last sale price
  • Review eligibility for and provide information about tax exemptions such as:
