This year, the State’s equalization rate means that Orangetown tax rates will go up substantially more than Clarkstown tax rates. Since Nanuet encompasses two towns, the State requires that the District “equalize” the taxes using a prescribed formula.
The District prepared a set of questions and answers (see below) to help explain the tax increase in Orangetown.
New York State also explains what equalization rates are at this web address:
As Nanuet must use the equalization rates provided by the State, we hope this information gives you an appreciation of the complexity in setting tax rates. Further questions as to why the equalization rate changed should be directed to the Town or the State Department Real Property Tax Services. https://www.tax.ny.gov/about/orpts/albany.htm
