A residential community in Dobbs Ferry has hit Attorney General Barbara Underwood and her office claiming their efforts to change their tax status have been stymied, LoHud reported. The Landing at Dobbs Ferry wants to change its tax status from “single-family-home” community to a “condominium” one to save on property taxes. But the residential community’s lawsuit claims the Attorney General’s Office is working with Dobbs Ferry officials to keep them from doing so. In a statement provided to the outlet, a spokeswoman for the Attorney General’s Office, Rachel Shippee, said the office “reject[ed] their claims.” “It’s a shame that the association is trying to muddy the waters by involving us in its dispute with the town,” she wrote. [LoHud]
