Ulster County Property Tax Rates for 2011

The Ulster County Property Tax Service Agency has released the tax rates for each municipality for 2011.  Overall property taxes are comprised of County taxes, Town taxes and School taxes.  As my readers know, I like to crunch the numbers and analyze the data.  The table below represents the County tax portion of the total amount that Ulster County property owners are required to pay.

Town $ Per Assessed $1000 $ Change from 2010 % Increase from 2010
Denning 21.53 + .15 +.7
Esopus 3.92 + .19 + 5
Gardiner 4.74 + .11 + 2.3
Hardenburgh 5.90 - .03 - .5
Hurley 4.00 + .11 + 2.8
Kingston (city) 3.91 + .18 + 4.8
Kingston (town) 4.62 - .08 - 1.7
Lloyd 3.91 - .04 - 1
Marbletown 3.90 + .02 + .5
Marlborough 3.94 + .21 + 5.6
New Paltz 3.90 + .18 + 4.8
Olive 3.88 + .18 + 4.9
Plattekill 4.30 - .10 - 2.3
Rochester 4.06 - .21 - 4.9
Rosendale 3.92 + .19 + 5.1
Saugerties 3.93 - .69 - 14.7
Shandaken 16.89 + .08 + .05
Shawangunk 20.72 - .67 - 3.1
Ulster 5.25 - .14 - 2.6
Wawarsing 238.05 - .13 - .05
Woodstock 4.27 - .19 - 4.3

You’ll notice that the tax rate varies significantly among the towns in Ulster County (see Wawarsing which is taxed $238.05 per $1000 assessed).  Each town has its own equalization rate, which varies from 1.55% in Wawarsing to 100% in other municipalities. As a result, the % change from 2010 is the best indicator relative to increases or decreases for county residents.

Residents living in these municipalities will be getting a break in 2011 (in order of % decrease): Saugerties (big drop of 14.7%), Rochester, Woodstock, Shawangunk, Ulster, Plattekill, Kingston (town), Lloyd, Hardenburgh and Wawarsing.

The top three towns that will see the biggest increase are Marlboro, Rosendale, and Esopus.

Overall, 11 municipalities will experience year-over-year increases while 10 municipalities will enjoy decreases.
