The Real Property Tax Service Agency is responsible for maintaining tax maps for the County. These maps are currently being maintained in digital format. Hard copies are made for a fee of $9.00 full sized and $6.00 half size. The fee for data in digital format is $25.00 per town and $10.00 per CD.
As authorized by Real Property Tax Law Section 503, subd. 7 and Ulster County Legislature Resolution No. 112 enacted May 14, 1992; the Real Property Tax Service Agency is responsible for collection and certifying that the fees for survey and subdivision maps to be filed with Ulster County have been paid. This process also includes assigning new tax map numbers and approving any new street names for 911. To assure there are no duplicate road names, prior to taking a subdivision map to the town planning board any new private road servicing more than one lot should be approved by our office and be shown on the subdivision map. This preliminary approval can be gotten over the phone with final approval being given when the subdivision map is filed with the county.
Fees are as follows:
- Two and three lot subdivision original, alteration, abandonment, and condominium maps $25.00
- Four through nine lot subdivision original, alteration, abandonment, and condominium maps. $50.00
- Ten or more lot subdivision original, alteration, abandonment, and condominium maps $100.00
Please check with your local planning boards for their subdivision approval requirements.
