Infho REAL! BM BMMBbBMMb rttureMf. Owners Who Have Right to Ask for Lower Assessments Herewith Is Also Described the Propcr Way to Filc Blanks for Reduction in Property Values. by VkWBBM riRDY, t.lO*"" ot Tax of the Urealer I'ity. owner of real ea tate or the ugent for regarda any property for more than Its full value mav makf appllcation for th. reductlon of the tss-ssment on or before November 15.

Tbe annual record of the assessed valu atlon of estate ia open for publlc ln aptctlon from October 1 to November 15, in order that It may be lnspeet erj by the owners of property, and objec? tlon be made lf asaessments are ex cewlve To ald persons who desire to make ap plicatlonu for reductlon and to aid the commlsslonera in considerlng such appll catlons, the department has prepared a blank which containe questlons covering ai nearly as possible all the materlal facts bearing on the value of property. The ahould answer fully and frankly tne Questlons which have a bearing BO the value of hls property. There ls spaee on the blank for any further statements the appllcant may de glre to make. If the queatlona are answered fully the commissioners wlll have before them ordlnarily all the material facts. Before these blanks were prepared ln thelr present form It was found that ap often uaed many words without conveylng any Informatlon helpful to thelr appltcatloru They frequently omltted im? portant facta whlch would hava been very atrong evidence In favor of thelr request When appllcatlons ane received hy the department they are lndexed In the bor? ough ln whlch the property ls located and are glven to the deputy who assessed the property.

who ls requlred to make a re on the back of the applicatlon and ln partlcular ahowlng the "analysis of the as eessment; he should make a further re port rosponslve to the allegations of the appllcant. From Decernber 1 to January the coir.micBloners act upon these appllcatloaa and give an opportunity for oral argu ment to such persons as rOQOO-1 in wrlt? lng a personal hearing. ln a comparatlvely small numlier of cases is a personal hearing of any value to the appllcant, because appli cantB can add nothing to the facts set forth In the written appllcatlon. lf they cannot add anythlng to the writ? ten appllcntion they the tlme of tiie OOBMnlaalonera, who require all the time the law allows for the considerntlnn of the aaaay thousands of applicatloi F.vory appllcatlon Is considered by the commissioners in the llght of the state ments made by the applicant, the report rrade by the deputy, and thelr own knowl edge of the conditions. Ir maklng an appllcatlon the nplicant slioulrl conalder carefully whether hls that tl.e assessmcnt Is exces atVO relates to the value placed upon the land or upoa the baUdlag or hoth.

If the ol relates to the land he ahould conalder whether there is by any chance nn inequallty between the assessment of his lot and that of other lots on the Bame block. Such Inequallty very rart-ly exlsts. If lt does cxist the mlstake ls almost certain to be corrected. lt llrTlcult for the commissioners to reduce the land valuation if the appll? cant regards the aasessment as too high ln the whole nelghborhood, becauae to correet the asaessment on one lot may lnvolve the reductlon of the aasessm.nt on a large number of lots. If the appllcant consldere that tho val? uatlon placed upon the bullding ls slve, be shoula conalder whether It ls filgher than the aeaessment on llke bulld ln the neighborhood, and if so polnt out ln what respect hls buildlng ( from others.

A buildlng ordlnarlly ean never he worth more thu'i the cost of reproducton: if assessed for more thun such vulue, evidence of the cost repro duction ls most valuable. Frequently a buildlng may add nothing to the land value; if so, evidence of that fact is most Important. The more the applicant knows of the system nnd methods of the department the better able he wtll be to preaent hla case intelllg. ntly.

Day for November 12, there wlll take place what is likely to be the last large publlc sale of Broadway property for a gool many yeara. A glance at the map ls suffltient t.i show that Broadway ln Manhattan no longer affords any land for subdivlslon an.l aale in small parcels. Beyond the shlp canal Broadway Is bordered along the easterly side by Van Cortlandt Park practlcally the entire dlstance to the Yonkers llne. On the westerly side of city's main hlghway north of Klngsbrldge ln the last few years sales have left few propertles ln flrst hands, wlth the excep? tion of those to be sold next month. T) the north between the Forster and Schmitt propertles and the city line is a tract held by the Amerlcan Real Eatate Company, and to the south are the large holdings of the Delafields, the Good rldges and others.

The Delafleld estate has already undertaken the development and Improvement of some of its property, and lt is thought highly improbable that any of the other large landed proprietors of Rlverdale wlll eonsider any early breaklng up of thelr estates. The Forster and Schmitt propertles have comtj Into the market at thls time as tho result of a pecullar comblnatlon of clr cumstances, and one whlch promlses un? usual opportunlties for buyers. The Schmitt lots are to be sold by order of John Whalen as trustee. for the beneflt of the credltors of Charles J. Schmitt Mr.
