Reval Notices Arrive In Cooperstown,
But It Doesn’t Mean Taxes Will Rise

COOPERSTOWN – If you own a downtown business or high-end mansion, your property taxes may be going up, but don’t jump to any premature conclusions, according to Mayor Jeff Katz.
Property owners in the Village of Cooperstown and Town of Otsego have begun receiving new assessment notices in their mailboxes in the past few days, the result of a joint village-town assessment underway over the past few months.
Some assessments are up, some are down and some are about the same, said Katz, but he cautioned property owners: Whatever happens to your assessment, it may not reflect in the amount of taxes you pay.
