Weekly Newsletter of the Office of Real Property Tax Services

Welcome to November. Stay tuned this month for the new Enhanced STAR Income Verification Program (IVP) Tool, the ACES Broadband Survey, and much more.

In the meantime, today we have a sales tip for new and returning assessors.

Tip for all assessors: Don’t wait to review your sales

Sales data is the foundation of the assessment profession. That’s why you should review your sales throughout the year. Here’s how:

Review the sales reports in the Online Assessment Community. Refer to Sales usability criteria for the details of what qualifies as an arms length sale and why properties are excluded.

Pay close attention to the Significant Change/New Construction/COD/RAR Usable column in the Arms Length Sales report. If you find a mistake in that column or elsewhere in the reports, follow these instructions:
