Are you paying too much in real estate taxes? 

A tax grievance is a formal complaint filed against a town’s assessed value on a particular parcel of property. Any person who pays property taxes can grieve an assessment, including:

  • property owners
  • purchasers
  • tenants who are required to pay property taxes pursuant to a lease or written agreement

Only the assessment on the current tentative assessment roll can be grieved - you can't grieve assessments from prior years. If your property is located in a village that assesses property, you will have two assessments, one for the village and one for the town.
