Grievance Process

When a complainant presents testimony and proof to support a complaint, the assessor is called upon to present his side and to explain the assessment of the property in question or recommend a change in the assessment if it is felt that a change is warranted.

A grievance with respect to an assessment may be filed with the assessor at any time prior to the hearing of the board of assessment review (BAR) or with the board of assessment review at such hearing, but may not be filed with the board of assessment review at any adjourned hearing it may conduct.

Adjourned Hearing-Important Information

  • If all grievances cannot be heard on grievance day, May 28, 2015, an adjourned hearing will be scheduled.
  • When a grievance is filed within three business days preceding grievance day, May 28, 2015, the BAR must grant an assessor’s request for an adjournment to permit the assessor adequate time to prepare a response to a complaint (RPTL § 524).

Therefore, any grievance received less than three business days prior to grievance day, May 28, 2015, will be automatically scheduled for an adjourned hearing.

  • Any evidence or proof in support of a complaint not submitted with the grievance application may not be later filed with the BAR at an adjourned hearing.
  • New grievance applications will not be accepted at an adjourned hearing.
