Fulton will no longer allow its Board of Assessment Review to review the assements of board members.
Tuesday, the city approved a deal with the city of Oswego to let each city’s board review assessment appeals from members of the other city’s board. Oswego lawmakers had already approved the agreement.
A report from the state Comptroller’s office finds that two members of the Fulton Board of Assessment Review were more successful in appealing their property assessments than the average citizens who came before the board to argue for reductions.
Fulton Mayor Ron Woodward agreed with the report’s recommendations but added that the report pointed out no wrongdoing.Ã‚Â “They said there was nothing criminal,” he said.
The Oswego County Real Property Tax Service will sell up to 79 parcels of tax delinquent properties at the annual tax property auction Saturday, Oct. 3, at Oswego County BOCES, County Route 64, Mexico.
Assemblyman Will Barclay (R,C,I-Pulaski) said today this fall is the first time in three years that property owners will not receive their STAR Rebate checks. The checks were eliminated in the budget.
Oswego County takes title to residential and farm properties after the taxes have gone unpaid for approximately four years. Title is taken for vacant land and commercial properties after two years of non-payment of taxes. The auction inventory may include open land, mobile home sites, dwellings, commercial and waterfront properties.
The state Division of Taxation and Finance this week unveiled a tool that will tell you how much you can expect when your STAR property tax rebate check arrives and when it will be mailed.
