The complexity of Equalization Values and Taxable Values:

A municipality is authorized to assess at market value. The Assessed value is the level of assessment

a community is assessing at, in this instance the Town of Moreau has a LOA (level of assessment) of

100%, which is the taxable value, based on sales and other components throughout the year.

The equalization rate is the state’s means to assure property tax allocation among taxing jurisdictions

and to allocate State Aid for Education.  Aside from apportionment of taxes among municipal

segments of school district, counties and distribution of State Aid for Education, the rate is used

to establish tax and debt limits, determination of state assessments such as state-owned land, railroad,

agricultural values and the level of star exemptions.  The rate takes into consideration all major type

properties.  Equalization rates DO NOT indicate the degree of uniformity among assessments within a municipality.

The Town of Moreau is seeking individuals possessing knowledge of property values to serve as members of the Board of Assessment Review.  Please Submit your Application and Resume to the Town Clerk
