Grievance DAY IS TUESDAY, MAY 26, 2015
To reserve your right to assessment review, you must file a grievance form, RP-524 Complaint on Real Property Assessment, with the Assessor’s office on or before Grievance Day, May 26, 2015. This link will take you to form RP-524: http://www.tax.ny.gov/forms/orpts/assessment_grievance.htm. This form is also available from the Assessor’s office.
The Board of Assessment review will hold hearings in the Canandaigua Town Hall lower level conference room. Fifteen minute appointments will be available.
You may find the publication entitled “Contesting Your Assessment in New York State” helpful. A link to this document is available on our website (townofcanandaigua.org) and hard copies are available from the Assessor’s Office.
For more information on the grievance process, I highly recommend viewing the NYS Tax Department’s video, “Contesting Your Property Assessment”. This 3 minute video is a personal favorite- it provides clear, concise information in an easy to understand format. Here is the link:
For more information, please call Marlene in our Assessment Office. The telephone number is 394.1120.
