my landlord put in a flat wood deck large in the backyard. Will that increase the taxes on the house?

Quick question, not sure where else to ask this without making my own thread.

First time homeowner, I just got a notice from the assessors office that my 2015-2016 assessment will be increasing from 36,000 to 38,500 reason's being AQ (A being "building complete" and Q being "not previously assessed)

Now, it was a reno, but the previous property tax was $7,000. After the reno and prior to selling, the taxes became $10,500 (ouch) so obviously that was factored in. My question is, what do those reasons REALLY mean, and also, how much of an impact can I expect from that assessment jump? I've read what the assessment is , but not how the formula works.

what percentage in assessed value that your building went up is around same percentage in value your taxes will go up.

A building worth $500K with 10K a year taxes if was reassessed at 10% higger or $550k your taxes will go up around 10%.

Of course that is only in a non-county wide-assessment year. If everyones assessed value at same time rose 10% it would have no effect on your taxes.

Bottom line you have higher taxes, you need to grieve them ASAP if you live in suffolk as deadline is within a few days. If Nassau you have to wait to January to greive

I think many on Long Island would be content if their property taxes were only 10% of their income.

I think that is easy to achieve for most folks through a combination of grieving taxes, downsizing and earning more income. AMT and Fed and NYS taxes are the real killer. You cant grieve it and more you earn the more they tax.

If they could figure out a way to tax us for posting here, they would.
