Assessment Letters Coming...

Posted by MJ


The Buffalo News and LUSJ reported that the mailing has been delayed about a week. Also notable:

....Koszarek said the state property tax office thinks the norm is for 10 percent to 20 percent of property owners to ask for meetings. In Lockport, that would be 800 to 1,600 parcels.
“Their view is, if it’s under 10 percent you didn’t raise it enough, and if it’s more than 20 percent you raised it too much,” Koszarek said.
 Sounds like an accurate system. ;)


Buffalo News reported they are on their way.
Notices of revised property assessments may begin landing in city property owners’ mailboxes as soon as this week.

After some false starts in the past decade, this will be the city’s first complete revaluation in 10 years.
Assessor Joseph Macaluso said he has booked a conference room in Lockport Senior Citizens Center at the Dale Association, 33 Ontario St., to hold informal conferences with property owners who disagree with their new assessments.
