According to Town Supervisor Jared Simpson, new property assessments for 2023 in Canandaigua are expected to result in a drop in tax rates for 2024.
Based on estimates from Simpson and the Town Board, the tax rate is projected to decrease from $1.06 to between 65 and 75 cents per $1,000 of assessed value. Moreover, town officials predict that the Canandaigua city school district tax rate will also fall this autumn, moving from $19.86 to $14.05 per $1,000.
Residents who missed informal review sessions with assessors will have more opportunities to make their case. On specified dates, assessors and the town Board of Assessment Review will be available for walk-in informal reviews and scheduled meetings.
Property owners wishing for a formal meeting with the review board to discuss their assessment need to submit an RP-524 form at the Town Hall. Upon submission, town staff will arrange a day and time for the meeting. Simpson offered assistance for anyone needing help with the form.
