This time of year, your local tax assessor’s office is swamped with putting together the final tax rolls, which of course, determines how much money you’ll have to pay in property taxes.
It also means that you have limited time left in many communities to file a grievance if you want to contest your property taxes.
The first step is to file an application with your local assessor’s office. Then your case will be heard by the local Board of Assessment Review.
This year, tax grievance day is scheduled for the third Tuesday in June (specifically June 19 if you need to mark your calendar) if you live in a town. If you live in a village, White Plains or Yonkers, you’ve already missed your chance.
