Its Tax Grievance Time In Nyack

Dated: April 22 2015

Yes, it's that time of year again when homeowners have the opportunity to challenge their property tax bill based upon their home's current tax assessment.

Many people will go to their village halls, such as Nyack, So. Nyack, and Upper Nyack, and they will also go to their prospective town halls in Orangetown and Clarkstown in order to look up their properties and those of their neighbors so they can compare their assessments and try to reduce the amount of taxes that they are paying each year. It can be a tedious process, especially for the average person who doesn't really understand how the system works. 

However, professional  help is available and it's worth a phone call.  As a realtor, I have recommended both of the following names to sellers of homes, and to neighbors and friends. Some were told that they didn't have a case, and others were successful.

Bruce Sokol of the Sokol Group 917-307-9200, or 845-215-8100, or email at bsokol@retax.com.

Richard O'Donnell Property Tax Consultant 914-779-4444. www.retiredassessor.com

Both offer free consultations and will explain the process and their fees.

The grievance deadline for all Rockland towns is the Fourth Tuesday in May.

If you feel that your tax bill is too high, or just want to know what your assessment is based upon, then give these tax professionals a call. They are both knowledgeable,  helpful and highly respected. Good luck!
