Property Tax Information is available to the public on the internet
The Columbia County Treasurer’s Office offers property tax information to the public on the internet.
This information includes both paid and unpaid property taxes on all parcels in Columbia County, except those located in the City of Hudson. In addition, parcels located in the Villages of Chatham, Kinderhook, Philmont, and Valatie will have County and Town taxes included –but not any taxes levied by the village.
During the first five months of each year, the current year property taxes are in the hands of the town tax collectors. You will either need to contact the town collector for current year info or access the town tax collector’s information on the internet. Links are available to the Town site HERE.
School tax information is only available on those parcels that were not paid directly to the school tax collector. Hudson City School District delinquent taxes are shown as separate line items, while all other schools would show as a re-levy on the current year property tax bills.
If you have any problems or need assistance with the web site, please call the Columbia County Treasurer’s Office at 518-828-0513 and ask for Nancy Baker.

List of town SWIS codes used on tax site
Note – There are hamlets located in every Town in Columbia County, and some hamlets involve more than one town. These hamlets have no official status, and therefore have no SWIS codes identified with them. SWIS codes are numeric town identifiers in the state wide identification system. You will have to determine which town the parcel in question is located in to find the appropriate SWIS code.
THERE ARE SEVERAL TOOL BARS THAT SHOW UP ON THE COMPUTER SCREEN – YOU WILL ONLY BE ABLE TO ACCESS THE TABS ON THOSE TOOL BARS THAT PERTAIN TO CHECKING THE STATUS OF TAXES AND PAYMENTS ON A PARCEL. You DO NOT have access to create or run reports.
