Town of Greenburgh Property Tax Reassessment Project

Greenburgh_cornerAs you may know, last year the Town of Greenburgh got the green light to embark on a town wide property tax reassessment, which includes the villages within.

In latest news,  Ardsley residents will have an opportunity to learn more about the steps the Town is taking in its first town-wide reassessment since 1956 on Wednesday, April 30 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at Ardsley Village Hall in the Village Board / Justice Court room.  During this session Ardsley residents will be able to ask our Assessor Edye McCarthy about the reassessment process, the timetable, who will be conducting the reassessment, and what will be the ramifications if residents deny access to a home for inspection.

Here is a link to a lohud article from March which gives a recap of the project:

Here is the official reassessment “Information Portal” where you can keep up to date with the progress. Of course, we will also post updates periodically to this blog.
