If you're concerned about the 2016 tax revaluation and how the Village budget will affect your tax rate, mark your calendar for two upcoming meetings.
On Monday February 1 at 6 pm, the Village Board of Trustees and the Scarsdale School Board will hold a joint meeting to discuss the Homestead Tax Option which is being considered due to the 2016 tax revaluation. Currently, all condominiums in Scarsdale are assessed based one their potential income as rental properties rather than as single-family homes. If this option is adopted by both boards, condominiums, primarily at Christie Place, would be taxed similarly to single family homes. At the time of the 2014 revaluation, the Homestead Act was considered, but not adopted. It will again be reviewed during this revaluation.
On Tuesday February 9, the Town Board of Scarsdale will hold a hearing on the adoption of the Homestead Tax Option, following the regular meeting of the Board of Trustees at Village Hall. Also on the agenda that night at 6 pm is a discussion of the proposed renovation and expansion project at the Scarsdale Library, including a review of how the financing would impact the Village budget.
