2024 Change of Assessments

Change of Assessment Notices will be mailed out the 4th week of April, 2024.  The Town of Moreau maintains a level of assessment at a uniform percentage of 100% of market value, ensuring all property assessments are fair and equitable.

As most of us know, property sales continue to be at record highs not only here in the Town of Moreau and Saratoga County, but state wide.  Please understand, you did not have to do anything to your home to increase it's value.  These increases are strictly market driven.

Before you call our office, we ask a couple of things from you.  First take a moment to look at the recent sales in your neighborhood.  They are shocking even to me.  Below on this page , click on the link "PROS Property Search" to view detailed information about your property.  Once you are on the site go to quick property search and then enter your address.  Please utilize the "Comparables" tab to view comparable property assessments and sale prices.  After you've looked at the sales, ask yourself if you were to list your property for sale today, what would you ask for it? Could you sell your property for the assessment, if your answer is no and you can support your case, give us a call at (518) 792-1030 x4.  If we agree with the supporting documentation you provided, we will offer you a reduction.  If we disgree, your next option is to file a complaint if the Board of Assessment Review.  See "Grievance Information Tab" for instructions.

The complexity of Equalization Values and Taxable Values:

A municipality is authorized to assess at market value. The Assessed value is the level of assessment

a community is assessing at, in this instance the Town of Moreau has a LOA (level of assessment) of

100%, which is the taxable value, based on sales and other components throughout the year.

The equalization rate is the state’s means to assure property tax allocation among taxing jurisdictions

and to allocate State Aid for Education.  Aside from apportionment of taxes among municipal

segments of school district, counties and distribution of State Aid for Education, the rate is used

to establish tax and debt limits, determination of state assessments such as state-owned land, railroad,

agricultural values and the level of star exemptions.  The rate takes into consideration all major type

properties.  Equalization rates DO NOT indicate the degree of uniformity among assessments within a municipality.

The Town of Moreau is seeking individuals possessing knowledge of property values to serve as members of the Board of Assessment Review.  Please Submit your Application and Resume to the Town Clerk.
