The Assessor's Job
The Assessor is responsible for preparing market value estimates for every property in the Town of Orleans. The values, or assessments are used for determining the tax burden for each parcel. Annually the Assessor's office reviews permits, transfers of property, and deeds to determine if a change in assessment is necessary.

The Assessor is also responsible for administering exemptions to taxation. These exemptions include Senior Citizen (Senior Citizen exemption-income less than $18,500), School Tax Relief (STAR)-(Basic STAR or Enhanced STAR). Basic STAR is for people under 65 years of age or folks whose income exceeds $60,000 Agricultural, and Veterans to name a few. Below are links to the most commonly used assessment forms.
