The Board of Assessment Review convenes on the fourth Tuesday of May to hear and evaluate grievances filed by home and property owners within the town. Members volunteer their service and select one of their members as the Chairperson of the Board each May prior to grievance day.
Complaints on Assessment must be in writing on Form RP-524, submitted together with your supporting documentation, and received in the assessor's office by close of business on Grievance Day. You are not required to appear in person; you may drop off your complaint and the Board will give it the same consideration as if you appeared.
If you would like to appear before the Board, we ask that you call us to schedule an appointment at 518-899-2584. This avoids unnecessary waiting on your part. appointments are first come first served-10:00 a.m. to noon and 6;00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. You are not givin a decision on Grievance Day. The Board will reconvene at a later time to make their determinations and those are mailed to you by the last day of June.
