2021 REASSESSMENT - IMPORTANT INFORMATION

In 2017, the Town of North Salem underwent an important and necessary reassessment project.  All properties were assessed at 100% of full market value.  It is the goal of the town to maintain its original investment in the 2017 project by continuing to maintain accurate property assessments.  In accordance with best practices and following New York State Real Property requirements for Cyclical Reassessments we have tried to keep the interim Assessment Rolls at 100% of market value by applying market trends based on sales.

Every property within the town is periodically inspected and data is obtained to determine its fair market value. This information is gathered and maintained in the assessment database. Updated property inventory through building permits, sales information and overall market trends are reviewed on a yearly basis. As a result of this data, a valuation is placed on all properties, every year.

The 2021 Assessment Roll required a complete Reassessment.  Reassessment means developing and reviewing a new determination of market value for each parcel based on current data.  While in 2017 we collected inventory from all properties, for the 2021 Reassessment project we are reviewing data from all properties, however (different from the 2017 Reassessment Project), we only performed physical inspections on those properties for which we find discrepancies/errors or have recent building permits.

If you have questions in regards to your assessment you may contact the Assessor, Karen Futia, IAO, at 914-669-5214 or preferably by email kfutia@northsalemny.org.  She will attempt to respond to you within 24 hours.
