Board of Assessment Review

Number of Members: 5
Duties:
Board of Assessment Review
The Board of Assessment Review (BAR) meets annually to hear complaints regarding property assessments and property exemption determinations.
The BAR is a five member board comprised of local citizens, each member is appointed by the Town Board and serves a five year term of office.
All complaints heard by the Board of Review must be filed on New York State form www.tax.ny.gov, which are available online or from the Assessor's Office.
At the time of the hearing it is beneficial for property owners to provide the BAR with photos of the property, physical descriptions of all buildings and a list of similar properties (with assessments) located within the community.
A property owner may contest a Board of Assessment Review decision by appealing to a Small Claims Assessment Review hearing or by filing suit in New York Supreme Court.
