The assessment of your property is determined by the local assessor
. Owners can meet with the assessor anytime throughout the year to resolve assessment questions about the next assessment roll. In an informal setting, the assessor can explain how the assessment is determined and the rationale behind it.
Each year, on or about May 1, the assessor files a tentative assessment roll. It is up to individual property owners to monitor their own assessment and take steps to challenge it if they feel it is unfair.
This website has made it convenient for owners to view assessment information on-line. If, after speaking with the assessor, you still disagree with the value, you have the right to seek a formal review of your assessment with the Board of Assessment Review.
to get instructions on how to file for a review of your assessment from the NYS Office of Real Property Services.
