Frequently asked questions

How do I know if I am paying too much property taxes in Larchmont?


Homes are taxed based on the Village of Larchmont's assessment. The Village of Larchmont Assessor sometimes overestimates the assessed value of your home. If the Larchmont Assessor overestimated the assessed value, it means your home is over assessed and you are paying more than your fair share of property taxes.




Does the Assessor’s Office in Larchmont make errors in determining the assessed value of homes in Larchmont?


Yes, mistakes sometimes happen. Categories of mistakes include incorrectly recording the square footage, lot size, and number of rooms, to name a few. These discrepancies might drive a higher assessed value of your home.




How can I reduce my property taxes in Larchmont?


In order to reduce your property taxes in Larchmont, one must challenge the assessment by filing a property tax assessment grievance with the Larchmont Board of Assessment Review. You only have one chance each year to challenge your property tax assessment in Larchmont.




Can my Larchmont property taxes go up by going through this process?
