2018 Townwide Reassessment Project

Over the last four years since the last townwide reassessment in 2014, local property values have appreciated significantly. Since Ogden assesses at 100% of market value, assessments should be periodically updated where needed to keep them in line with market values. This also ensures that fair and equitable assessments are maintained. Change of Assessment Notices for any affected properties will be mailed in spring 2018. They will have instructions about how to schedule an informal assessment review of a preliminary assessment if one disagrees.

Change of Assessment Notices are mailed to affected residents in early March, 2018.

The following are some helpful pamphlets which may answer some of your questions or concerns:

STAR program changes:

As a result of recent law changes, some homeowners will receive a STAR credit in the form of a check directly from New York State, rather than receiving a STAR exemption on their school tax bill. The amount of your benefit will be the same regardless of how you receive it.

Beginning with the 2016-2017 school year, in order to receive a STAR credit, new STAR applicants will need to register with the New York State Department of Tax and Finance either by calling 518-457-2036 or online by clicking the following link:            Register for the STAR credit.

Current STAR exemption recipients:
  • Current Basic and Enhanced STAR exemption recipients will keep their exemption as long as they continue to own their current home and continue to meet residency and income eligibility requirements.
  • Current Enhanced STAR exemption recipients who are not enrolled in the Income Verification Program must continue to file a renewal application with their local assessor each year.

Mailing of Exemption Renewal Applications:

Renewal applications for Enhanced STAR, Low-Income Senior Citizen, Low-Income Persons with Disability, Clergy and Parsonage exemptions will be mailed by the end of September. Agricultural renewals and Parent/Grandparent "In-law" renewals will be mailed by the end of December.

Please read the instructions that accompany the renewal application carefully, doing so may avoid additional trips for you.
You may contact the Assessor's Office if you do not receive your renewal application.

All new and renewal applications, and supporting documentation if applicable, are due to the Assessor's Office by March 1st.
