Town of Greenburgh Reassessment - 3/21/16

Town of Greenburgh Reassessment – Letters were mailed out from Tyler Technologies, the consulting firm performing the reassessment on behalf of the Town of Greenburgh.  The cover letter included what is known as a Preliminary Assessment Notification.  The assessment value provided in the notice is the preliminary 2016 assessment.  If you, as the property owner believe that the preliminary assessment does not accurately reflect the market value as of July 1, 2015, which was the valuation date, you or your representative may contact Tyler Technologies to schedule an informal review.  Please note that the informal review meetings are by appointment only.  At the meeting, Tyler Technologies will discuss the 2016 market value.  Tyler Technologies will not discuss exemptions or taxes at the meeting.  If a property owner wants to schedule an appointment, the property owner must call Tyler Technologies now through April 8 at 800-273-8605, between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm.  You must have your notice with you when you call because there is information on the notice that you must provide to Tyler Technologies when you are scheduling an appointment.  The informal meetings generally take 15 to 20 minutes.  Photographs of your property and building as well as recent appraisals are not required; however, such documentation is encouraged if you have it for the informal meeting.  It is suggested that you make copies for Tyler Technologies and bring the copies to the informal meeting.  Commercial property owners are encouraged to provide income and expense information.  If a property owner cannot attend an informal meeting, correspondence may be sent to Tyler Technologies.  Tyler Technologies address is included on the notice just received.  Correspondence must be postmarked by April 22, 2016. 

If you choose to have an informal meeting with Tyler Technologies, a final reassessment notices will be mailed to you for the June 1 tax bills.  If you decide not to go through the informal review process, the preliminary assessment will become your final assessment.  If a property owner is dissatisfied with the outcome of the informal review process, the assessment can be challenged by filing an appeal with the Greenburgh Board of Assessment Review between the period from June 1 through June 21, 2016.
