Fourth Tuesday in May - Grievance Day:
Board of Assessment Review meets to hear assessment complaints. Last
day property owners may file a formal complaint seeking reduction in
their tentative assessments.
July 1 - Final Tax Roll:

(tentative tax roll assessments plus all changes made by the Board of
Assessment Review). No assessments can be changed for any reason after
this roll is filed, except those changed by court order as a result of
formal legal challenges.
Grievance Day is the fourth Tuesday in May.
Grievance Board is a three member board which reviews your tax
assessment in cases where you and your Assessor disagree as to the
value/relative value of your property for real property tax purposes.
Assessment Review Board Members:
Mike Linville Pete Matwey Ronald Cannon
Board meets once a year, in May, to hear and rule on taxpayer
complaints. The Board has the authority to sustain or override the
decision of the Town Assessor.
Complaint forms and instruction booklets outlining the grievance procedures are available in the Assessor's office after May 1.
Assessment records are available for review in the Assessors office.
Assessor's office does not participate in the decisions made by the
Grievance Board. They are an independent body and the Assessor's office
receives their decision at the same time as you. The Assessor's office,
therefore, does not have any information to assist in answering specific
questions you may have about a Grievance Board decision. If you have
any questions, they should be forwarded in writing to the Town of
Chenango Grievance Board.
