If you haven’t seen a data collector at your door yet, you will soon. We asked Scarsdale Village Assessor Nanette Albanese for an update on the real estate tax revaluation and here is what she shared with us:
The village-wide revaluation is in process and data collectors have completed two inspection rounds in Edgewood. Owners who were not at home when the data collectors made these two attempts were sent regular mail letters asking that they call the revaluation office to schedule an appointment. As a result, additional inspections have been made and this process is on going.
The collectors are now well into Fox Meadow, attempting to access homes, and will make two attempts to gain entry. Upon completion of data collection in Fox Meadow, letters will also be sent to those that were not home or available during the regularly scheduled data collection of Fox Meadow.
As of September 28, 2012, there were a total of 2,284 houses that were measured and inspected on the exterior of which 1,462 were also inspected on the interior. There are a total of approximately 5,342 taxable residential properties in Scarsdale that will be inspected for revaluation purposes. There are also about 300 commercial or tax-exempt properties that will require inspection. The inspection of these properties has not yet started and will likely begin in January/February 2013.
Murray Hill/Heathcote are next to be collected and inspected, then Greenacres and last, Quaker Ridge. Depending on the weather and possible other factors, this schedule may have to be modified, but as of today, this is the plan.
Upon full completion of the data collection, sales validation, computer modeling and valuation testing phases of the project will begin. At this point, that looks like early summer of 2013. Preliminary values will be issued to all property owners in the spring of 2014, which will then be posted to the tentative assessment roll on June 1, 2014. As always, homeowners will have until the third Tuesday in June 2014 to protest their assessment, if warranted.
