Data Anomaly Finder: Summary of queries for non-V4 users now available

The Data Anomaly Finder (DAF) is an Excel tool that enables users to review their RPSV4 data for errors. For those of you who don’t use V4, the DAF Query Summary provides a list of the queries that you can use to review your data. 

And, for the vast majority of you who use V4, we encourage you to run the tool and begin reviewing your data. You’ll find the tool, instructions, and examples of how to fix your data on New York State Assessment Community Enterprise System (ACES).

For assistance, contact your ORPTS Regional Liaison

The IRS’s Form 1040 has changed for 2018 income taxes. To confirm eligibility for the senior citizens and low-income disability exemptions, where should I look for the information that is no longer on the 1040?

If the taxpayer filed Form IT-201, Resident Income Tax Return, we suggest you request a copy of that form. It should contain most if not all the information you need to confirm income eligibility.

If Form IT-201 is not available, refer to Page 3 (Form 1040 Redesign Helpful Hints) of the 1040 Instructions for the 2018 Tax Year.
