Deadline to request advisory appraisals is approaching

If you’re conducting a reassessment, and you expect to request a utility advisory appraisal, the deadline to submit Form RP-7021, Utility Advisory Appraisal Request, is 270 days prior to your tentative roll date (by August 1 for localities using the standard assessment calendar). Please include a request for each year of a reassessment cycle.

Another updated handout

The one-page handout, Assessments vs. taxes: What’s the difference?, has a fresh new look.

Assessors in the midst of a reassessment find this handout particularly helpful. You can print it in color or black and white for your office.

ICYMI: We’ve also recently updated the handouts for the seniors and veterans’ exemptions. Here are the links:

Reminder: When properties sell

After a property sells, don’t forget to:

  • transmit the sale and any changes to ORPTS (see Sales usability criteria),
  • update your roll to reflect the sale inventory, and
  • update the IVP record to indicate the property was sold.

New judicial case

We’ve added Bayview Loan Servicing, LLC v City of Middletown to new Judicial cases.
