The Town Board appoints the Town Assessor for a term of six years. The Assessor's duties are specified in the New York State Real Property Tax Law and generally focus upon the maintenance of up-to-date records on the valuation of real property within the Town of Parma. The Assessor prepares an annual assessment roll, which is used to formulate the tax liability due for each parcel of real property in the Town.

Real Property Valuation
The Assessor inventories and values Real Property at a uniform percentage of value. The results of the annual revaluation of the 2002 tax roll has maintained the equalization rate for the Town of Parma at 100.00% up till 2009 when the Town chose not to maintain the assessments and the Town equalization rate fell to 97%. The Town Assessor coordinated a Town wide re-valuation in 2010 to bring the equalization rate back to 100% and the goal of the assessment office is to maintain the equalization rate at 100%.
Formal reviews are conducted annually on Grievance Day, the 4th Tuesday in May.
