SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- The village has issued a clarification in regard to property values and tax bills.
Village officials said, "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," according to a release from the village.
Officials want residents to know that "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," according to the release. The bills are based on property values as of July 1, 2013.
"It is too late to file a grievance on the July 2013 value and the 2014 tax bills," village representatives said. "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."
Officials said residents should know that the property revaluation for the new values will value property as of July 2014, according to the release.
"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," officials said. "Residents that have questions about the July 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."
Residents are asked to call 722-1324 and schedule an appointment.
"If after the informal meeting with representatives from Tyler Technologies about the new value (that is the July 2014 value), a property owner still has an issue with the new value, i.e., July 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," officials said in the release.
