Real Property Tax Service Agency FAQ
The work of the Fulton County Real Property Tax Service Agency serves three distinct groups;
- First as an advocate for and support agency to County Government;
- Second, in the support and mentoring of the local assessment community; and
- Third, as an advocate and resource in real property matters to the public.
The Real Property Tax Service Agency was established by New York State statute in 1970 with the enactment of Article 15-A of the Real Property Tax Law. One of the main responsibilities given to Counties under this legislation was the responsibility to create and maintain tax maps.
These maps were originally designed for local assessors to assist them in fulfilling their legal obligations by displaying the size and location of parcels within the towns, cities, villages, schools and special districts. Over the years the departments responsibilities have expanded. For more information, please refer to our department Annual Report.
Using the Image Mate Online" application will give the ownership, property inventory, assessed value as well as other useful information.

The property SBL is also known as the "Tax Map Number" or "Property ID Number".
It consists of the Map "Section", The individual "Block" located in the map and the individual "Lot" number. (e.g. 149.10-5-1)
These numbers appear on various documents including Assessment Rolls, Tax Rolls, Tax Bills, Etc.
