Town of Ramapo Residents - Do You Know How Tax Assessments Work and How to Grieve Them? 

Property values in Rockland County have been going down, but property taxes in most cases, have been going up.  The tax structure is based on the assessed value of your home and for those that feel that they are being over assessed there is a grievance process via which you can fight your assessment. 

The deadline for filing grievances, is the fourth Tuesday in the month of May.  This year that's May 22 and it's quickly approaching.    If you feel you are being taxed unfairly you can check out the Town of Ramapo's grievance process at their on-line site by visiting  www.ramapo.org and checking  under "property owners toolkit". 

Here you can compare the town's assessed value of your home with nearby properties.  The website provides information about estimating the market value of your property, the relationship between your taxes and your assessment, and also how to go about challenging the assessment.

You'll then have enough information to decide whether to challenge the assessment during the grievance period which ends May 22.

For help with assessment information you can call the Town of Ramapo Tax Assessor's office at 845-357-5100 extension 255. 

Whther you live in the Town of Ramapo or elsewhere, here's a helpful video outlining the steps you need to take to go about lowering your taxes.  But hurry!! The deadline for filing is fast approaching.

Leah, Betting this information will be popular with area residents.  Our local deadline already passed until next year, so nice to see Ramapo have such a long window.
