Agenda

1. Property Tax Revaluation – Presentation by Tyler Technologies, Inc.



Confusion with the property revaluation

Confusion with the property revaluation. Some residents are confusing the County April 2014; the Village July 2014 and the School September 2014 tax bills with the revaluation that is now nearing completion.

First, The County April 2014; Village July 2014 and School September 2014 tax bills are taxes for the County January 2014 fiscal year; the Village 2014-2015 fiscal year and the School July 2014-2015 fiscal year. These bills are based on property values as of July 1, 2012 (2013 Assessment Roll). It is too late to file a grievance on the July 2012 value and the 2014 tax bills. These 2014 tax bills have nothing to do with new 2014 values that are being updated for your property with the revaluation project currently in progress.

Second, The property revaluation for the new values will value property as of June 2014. The new values will apply to the County April 2015 tax bill; the Village July 2015 tax bill and the School September 2015 tax bill. Residents that have questions about the June 2014 value which will eventually be applied to their county April 2015; Village July 2015 and School September 2015 tax bills can discuss their questions with the revaluation company, Tyler Technologies, that the Village retained to establish the new values. Call 722-1324 and schedule an appointment. This is an informal meeting to have your questions answered.

Third, If after the informal meeting with representatives from Tyler Technologies about the new value (that is the June 2014 value) a property owner still has an issue with the new value, i.e. June 2014 value, then a formal grievance can be filed with the Village’s Board of Assessment Review between June 1, 2014 and June 17, 2014. The grievance can be filed at the Assessor’s office and the Board of Assessment Review will hear the grievance during that time period.

Scarsdale Reassessment 2012 - Press Release III

PRESS RELEASE:

November 27, 2012

RE:   The Scarsdale Reassessment – Data Collection in the Heathcote school district neighborhoods is scheduled to begin the week of December 3, 2012.

The Town/Village is currently in the process of conducting a town-wide reassessment program.  This process will produce the fair market value of every property in the Town/Village for the 2014 assessment roll.  An integral part of this process is the inspection of your home by a professional data collector.

Over the next few weeks, data collectors will be inspecting homes in the Heathcote elementary school district neighborhood.  Data collectors will collect specific information about a property, such as the type of building construction materials, the number of stories, number of bedrooms, bathrooms, etc.  They will also measure the outside perimeter of the residence/building and any other structures on your property.  They will NOT be collecting any information on personal property, such as artwork, furniture, or appliances, will not be taking interior photographs and do not concern themselves with the tidiness of your home.

The inspection will typically take 15 to 20 minutes and you are encouraged to accompany the data collector during the inspection.  As a quality control measure, your property may also be selected to be subsequently visited a second time by a project monitor, whose job it is to verify the accuracy of the data that was collected on the first visit.  Only a small random sample of properties will be monitored.

It is in the taxpayer’s individual and collective best interest that all new assessments are based on current and accurate data.  The best way to achieve that goal is toallow the data collector to inspect your property.  A letter detailing the physical attributes collected and to be used in the valuation, referred to as a data mailer, will be sent to you in the winter of 2013.  To value all properties as accurately as possible, it is critical that all property owners cooperate and participate in the data collection process.

Data collectors will attempt to inspect your home during the day, early evening hours before dark and/or on Saturdays.  If you are not available when the initial data collection attempts are made, a first-class letter will be sent to you requesting that you call our offices for an appointment @ #722-1324, or #722-1326.  If you do not respond to the first-class letter within 10-14 business days, a certified letter will be subsequently sent to you.
