The 2013 tax bills have been mailed and should be arriving in homes in the next few days. Tax rate increases by town vary widely this year. These drastic changes are due primarily to the reassessment of the City of Troy properties. You may wonder how this affects properties in our other towns, Schaghticoke, Brunswick and Pittstown. The letter below will attempt to explain how reassessment affects all properties within the school district. (updated 9/3/13)
New legislation requires all homeowners receiving basic STAR exemption to register with the NYS Tax department in order to receive the exemption in 2014 and subsequent years. Registration runs from August 19, 2013 - December 31, 2013 (posted 8/27/13)
Please remember that the school acts as the “collector” of the taxes. If you have a discrepancy on your bill that has to do with your assessment of property or exemptions, please contact your assessor’s office through your town or city hall.
