Yesterday and today, The Journal News and LoHud.com has published a series of articles written by staffer Laura Incalcaterra regarding property tax exemptions in Rockland.
Who has them, why they exist and possible solutions to the property tax problem in New York have all been addressed in several articles, all of which are available through the Rockland page on LoHud.com.
One thing Laura did that we were unable to fit in among everything else was to create a list for each town that shows how much of each class (i.e., type) of property in each town is fully tax-exempt, by assessed value.
Each of these files is available by clicking on the links below, starting with perhaps the most important, the key to identifying each class.
Key to class numbers and names â€” Use this file to figure out what each class number on each file corresponds to which type of property.
We welcome any comments or questions about this series. Feel free to e-mail Laura or myself directly or drop us a line below.

An e-mail this afternoon from Assemblywoman Nancy Calhoun reminded me that Grievance Day is a week from tomorrow.
No, it’s not a day where you get to just complain about anything and everything; it’s the deadline for folks to file formal grievances on their property tax bills.
Calhoun included a link to a helpful pamplhet: “Fair Assessments: A Guide for Property Owners,” as well as a link to the overall Office of Real Property Services site.
The Assemblywoman also reminds folks of an important point: You need not pay anyone to help you file a grievance. Forms are free at your assessor’s office; you just have to drop them off at the office on or by May 27.

Unhappy with your property tax assessment?
The state has released a packet that explains all the criteria for challenging your assessment, as well as the forms you need to fill out to do that. You can download the pdf here. (Hat tip to the town of Ramapo for disseminating this info.)
