Residents of the town have been asking us to provide more information about the reassessment. The following map was posted on the Assessor’s page of the Greenburgh website: www.greenburghny.com and highlights changes in residential assessments by school district.
We understand that residents have legitimate questions and concerns about the reassessment process and want to provide the community with the maximum information possible.

HOW WE ARRIVE AT YOUR ASSESSMENT
As of June 2016, the Unincorporated Town of Greenburgh, as well as the Villages of Irvington and Ardsley will be assessed at 100%. This means that the assessment should match current market value.
The Town assesses all real property at a percentage of market value. The percentage is known as an equalization rate (ER). These rates are established by the NYS Office of real Property Services (http://www.orps.state.ny.us/) annually. This rate and ratio changed annually based on real estate market trends. Most important is their use to equalize the assessment into full market value prior to 2016. Example of both shown below:
Prior Assessed Value Rate Value
16,500 / 3.09% (EQ) = $533,980
2016 Assessed Value Rate Value
533,980 / 100% = $533,980
Please Note: For the Villages of Tarrytown, Dobbs Ferry, Hastings, and Elmsford, the Village portion of their taxes will be based on the prior method of assessing (a percentage of market value). They will still use the ratio based system to determine value.
More information about the reassessment will be posted on the home page and on the assessors page during the process.
