Philipstown will hold two “grievance day” hearings
As in many communities across the state, the Philipstown Board of Assessment will hear property tax appeals from 3 to 5 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. on “Grievance Day,” Tuesday, May 24. All complaints must be in writing.
The 2016 tentative assessment rolls, which lists the assessed value of each property, can be reviewed at putnamcountyny.com or at Town Hall, 238 Main St., Cold Spring.
“It’s up to you to ensure that the market value determined for your property is accurate,” said NYS Commissioner of Taxation and Finance Jerry Boone. “Don’t wait for your tax bill to arrive,” as grievances must be made by May 24.
When filing for assessment review, the board will want to see an estimate of your home’s market value. To support that estimate, provide documentation about the sale of comparable homes or property in your community. Property owners can find forms, instructions and guidance at www.tax.ny.gov. Forms also are available at the Assessor’s Office at Town Hall.
