    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.    

     
    The Assessor also assists in the defense of litigation regarding property taxes.
