“My appraisal just went up 27% from last year,” my neighbor just told me. “It’s insane!”
“I never receive so many phone calls as I receive this time every year,” says Caryn Luntz, of Westchester Real Property Tax Reductions. Caryn has been a local property tax consultant for over 20 years, and specializes in grievances, or appeals, of assessments for local clients.
“It’s always good to check with a professional to determine if you are paying the right amount of property tax on your home, especially for those with homes whose market value is $2,000,000 and below.”
The 2020 period for grievances for most Towns is in full swing. The deadline to file is July 21.
An assessment can be challenged if the owner of the property files a complaint in the city, town or village in which the property is located.
For example, if you live in the Town of Mamaroneck, the information is here. Here is where you can find the right person to contact in other villages or towns.
