Sample Property Tax Report for a Onondaga County, NY property

In New York State, the real property tax is a tax based on the value of real property. Counties, cities, towns, villages, school districts, and special districts each raise money through the real property tax. The money funds schools, pays for police and fire protection, maintains roads, and funds other municipal services enjoyed by residents.

Market Value

Market value is determined by the Department of Taxation and Finance and reflects the amount of money a buyer would be willing to pay a seller for property offered for sale on an open market, over a reasonable amount of time, where both the buyer and seller are well informed and neither is under undue pressure to act.

Land value $20,000
Building value + $61,300
Market value = $81,300
Assessed Value

In New York State each municipality is authorized to assess the property at market value or some fraction of market value. The assessed value is a uniform percentage of the market value of the property as of January 2 for any given year. Equalization rates are calculated each year to reflect that year's assessment roll and current market values for each assessing unit. For this property, the equalization ratio is: 100.00%.

Land assessed value $20,000
Building assessed value + $61,300
Assessed value = $81,300
