Local taxpayers can challenge their property assessments during upcoming Grievance Days.
According to the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance, taxpayers should visit the Web site of their city or town to find their property assessments.
State law requires towns and cities to make assessment rolls available on the Internet and provide a link to the information from their home pages.
The City of Fulton will hold its Grievance Days May 22 while the towns of Volney and Schroeppel will hold theirs May 23.
The Town of Hannibal will hold its Grievance Day May 24 and the Town of Granby will hold its Grievance Day May 30.
Not sure how to grieve your assessment?
The Tax Department has created a number of useful videos and publications that help taxpayers understand property tax assessments. They’re available at www.tax.ny.gov.
Local online assessment rolls list each property’s assessed value, estimated market value and exemptions.
