The OARS system provides you with information on real property data maintained by the Town of Bethlehem Assessor's Office. The site allows you to view property information, structure information, exemption information, property sale information, and the most recent tax bill information. The site also offers the capability to perform comparable property assessment and sales searches.
How to Contest Your Assessment
Visit the New York State Office of Real Property Services website to obtain a form and instructions on how to file for a review of your assessment (formal grievance). Grievance forms and procedures are also available in the Assessor’s Office and through the website.
“Why pay for something that you can do for free?”
As a homeowner, you may grieve your assessment yourself directly with our Assessor’s Office. Our Online Assessment Roll System information will help you compare your assessment with other similar properties. You can then fill out the forms provided online and file your grievance directly with our Assessor’s Office at any time prior to, or on, Grievance Day. If after the assessor’s review and decision you are still not satisfied with your assessment, you still have time to explore other options.
The OARS System is by far the easiest way to view assessment and property information. However, you can also view the 2015 Final Assessment Roll in its paper form, either in the Assessor’s Office, or online - 2015 Final Assessment Roll (this is a large PDF.)
Below are links to the PDF versions of final assessment rolls (they are large PDF files).
