Collaborative Property Tax Administration in Albany County: A Review of Assessment and Tax Collection Options

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.
