Tax Grievance Day Tuesday in Sag Harbor

Fri, 02/16/2024 - 13:56

Those who wish to contest their Sag Harbor Village taxes can file a grievance on Tuesday afternoon from 1 to 5. There are two ways to file a grievance: in person at the Municipal Building and virtually via Zoom. Only current tax assessments, not those from years past, can be challenged.

According to the Sag Harbor Village website, property assessments are "based on sales data and physical characteristics" of the property and reflect the market value. Residents who believe that their property assessment is incorrect and want to have their taxes recalculated must complete a "complaint on real property assessment form," which can be found at this link, and make two copies in addition to the original.

According to New York State's Department of Taxation and Finance, "There is no cost to grieve an assessment and it does not require you to hire a lawyer." Additional information on the process can be found online via New York State here.

Sag Harbor's virtual tax-grievance link can be found on the village website,

Green Giants: Here to Stay?

Long Island’s South Fork, known for beaches, maritime history, and fancy people, is also known for its hedges. Hedge installation and maintenance are big business, and there could be a whole book about hedges, with different varieties popular during different eras. In the last decade, for example, the “green giant,” a now ubiquitous tree, has been placed along property lines throughout the Hamptons. It’s here to stay, and grow, and grow.
