Scarsdale’s Board of Assessment Review completed their review of tax grievances for 2011 and posted the final assessment roll on September 15, 2011. The stats are now available. Here is what we learned after filing a FOIL request at Village Hall.
- The total number of grievances filed in 2011 was 592 as compared to 757 in 2010, a reduction of 22%
- In 2011, 25.5% of the grievances were approved as compared to 26.1% in 2010
- The total amount of the reduction in the assessed value was $619,625 in 2011 versus $774,545 in 2010.
- Using the Residential Assessment Ratio (RAR) of 1.76%, that means that Scarsdale lost $1,363,234 in assessed value in 2010 and an additional $1,090,540 in 2011.
