Abstract:

In 2008, NYS provided grant funds to encourage counties to study how to streamline their local assessment and/or tax administration programs to promote efficiency, equity and transparency for taxpayers. Albany County was the only county in the state to analyze the assessment and tax administration program simultaneously. Recognizing the great diversity in the county à à ¢ 3 cities and large differences in community and culture between the different areas of the county à à ¢ officials chose to use grant funds to specifically analyze the collection, dissemination and use of data.
