If your assessment is correct and your tax bill still seems too high, the assessor cannot change that. If you are concerned with the amount of property taxes being collected in your community, you may wish to be involved with the local budgeting processes. There are public meetings you can attend and voice your opinion, and you also have the opportunity to vote on your school budget. You should examine the scope of budgets and expenditures of each taxing jurisdiction (county, town, village and school districts) and address those issues in appropriate and available public forums. For school district taxes, in addition to voting on the budget, you can attend budget meetings. Generally, the budget meeting are held in the spring through early April. For municipal and county taxes, budget meetings are held in the fall through mid-November. Special districts (fire districts, sewer districts, etc.) also hold public meetings, but the dates vary. Contact the district for more information.
