Property owners who feel their property is unfairly assessed have the right to present information in support of their claim to the Board of Assessment Review. Grievance Day always takes place on the 4th Tuesday in May. Grievance forms are available at the Assessor's Office.
They meet to hear formal written complaints from property owners who disagree with their property assessment. A publication entitled “Contesting Your Assessment in New York State” is available at the Assessor’s Office or online here: Contesting Your Assessment in New York State
Also, please note that your Assessor and the Board of Assessment Review can only review assessed value; they do not set and cannot adjust your taxes.
