If you think your assessment (and therefore your taxes) is too high, the deadline for filing a grievance is June 18th in most municipalities throughout Westchester, according to the Mamaroneck Town Assessors Office. If one misses June 18th then the next time to file is June 2020.
Any person who pays property taxes can grieve an assessment. Only the assessment on the current tentative assessment roll can be grieved – you can’t grieve assessments from prior years.
“Since property taxes tend to be high in Westchester County, it’s important for homeowners to ensure that their home is valued fairly and that the property is not overassessed” says Caryn Luntz, a real estate consultant at WestchesterTax.com who specializes in property tax reduction.
“There is a strong possibility that the taxes of many homeowners can be reduced,” Luntz says, “and we can help them.”
