It’s Grievance Day For Property Owners
If you own a home or property, today is the deadline to file your grievances!
If you feel as though your tax assessment is wrong, today is the day to file a grievance to try to get the assessment corrected.
According to New York's website:
There are two levels of formal review:
- Administrative review - the "grievance" process is conducted at the municipal level (contact your local town website)
- Judicial review
- In order to pursue judicial review you must first go through administrative review
- includes two options:
- Small Claims Assessment Review (SCAR) - a low-cost option available to most homeowners;
- Tax certiorari proceedings in State Supreme Court - to pursue this option, you should contact an attorney.
