This week, property owners in Hudson received their tentative assessment in the mail, and today the tentative roll is available online. The roll is arranged alphabetically by property owner's last name, and only the tentative assessment is given. If you are curious to compare other people's 2018 assessment, their preliminary assessment, and the tentative assessment, the preliminary assessment information, which gives the 2018 assessment, is still available here.
The process isn't over. For those who did not challenge their preliminary assessment or for those dissatisfied with the adjustment made, the tentative assessment can be contested. The first step should probably be a visit to the city assessor, who is in his office at City Hall from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Information on how to contest your assessment is available on the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance website. The process of contesting your tentative assessment involves filing a written complaint using Form RP-524, which is available from the assessor or online by clicking here. The form needs to be submitted to the assessor before Tuesday, May 28, which is Grievance Day.
