STAR Registration Program

New legislation  requires all homeowners receiving a Basic STAR exemption to register with the New York State Tax Department in order to receive STAR exemptions in 2014 and subsequent years  This is part of a new initiative to protect New Yorkers against the costs of inappropriate or fraudulent STAR exemptions.

The Assessor’s Office is equipped with  GIS Mapping, Digital Photos, Pictometry and the lastest NYS Version 4 Software. The Assessor’s Office prepares an Assessment Roll each year for the purpose of levying property assessment. The Assessor and staff maintain property records relating to ownership of property and the physical description of the property. The Assessor is responsible for placing an assessed value for the real property on the Assessment Roll. The office helps property owners with questions on their property assessment and preparation of exemption applications for senior citizens, eligible funds for veterans, farms, and business exemptions.  The Chamberlain’s Office handles any question regarding property taxes

Assessment year focuses on May 1 (Taxable Status Date). Assessed value of property is based on the condition and use of the real property on that day. Changes in assessed values are mailed to property owners in May. Taxable Status Date is also the last day property tax exemption applications can be received by the Assessor.

The City of Oneida Board of Assessment Review meets on Grievance Day, the second Tuesday in June, to receive complaints of property tax assessment. Grievances must be written and received by the five person board, or the Assessor, on or before Grievance Day. The final assessment roll is completed and certified on August 1.

The City of Oneida’s current Equalization Rate is 100%

EQUALIZATION RATE – An equalization rate is the state’s measure of a municipality’s level of assessment. This is the ratio of total assessed value (AV) to the municipality’s total market value (MV) or AV/MV. The municipality determines the AV and the MV is estimated by NYS. An equalization rate of 100 means that the municipality is assessing property at 100 percent of market value. An equalization rate of less than 100 means that the municipality’s total market value is greater than it’s assessed value. An equalization rate of greater than 100 means that the total assessed value for the municipality is greater than its total market value.

LEVEL OF ASSESSMENT RATIO – The Level of Assessment (LOA) is simply the percentage of market value at which properties are assessed within a community. For instance, an LOA of 50% would indicate that assessments are at half of the market value; an LOA of 100% represents a community that is assessing at full value.
