COVID-19 & Grieving Your Assessment in 2020
At the time of this writing the Governor of New York has issued an Executive Order (202-22) stating two changes that impact this year's property tax calendar: 1) a new deadline of June 1 for Tentative Assessment Rolls to be posted and 2) the potential delay of Grievance Day, the date when assessment complaints may be made.
- Some towns HAVE posted their Tentative Rolls and Grievance Day will likely go on as scheduled for May 26.
- Some towns HAVE NOT posted their rolls so Grievance Day will be delayed at least 21 days after the filing.
- It is very important that you check your town's assessment calendar to see if your Tentative Roll has or has not been posted — and if the date for the Board of Assessment Review in your town has been rescheduled.
