Is Your Assessment Fair? / Contesting Your Assessment

For Peekskill, the grievance period each year is June 1st to the 3rd Tuesday in June.  For 2015, since June 1st falls on a Sunday, this period will be from June 2rd to June 17th.

Complaints on Assessment (grievance forms) are not accepted BEFORE the publishing of the tentative assessment roll (June 2st) or AFTER Grievance Day (June 17th).

Grievance Day is always the 3rd Tuesday in June (June 17th for 2015). You do not need to appear before Board of Assessment Review, but if you would like the board to hear your case, you can set up an appointment with the Assessment Office after June 1st.  You can also walk in during the posted hours, but you may have to wait. Hours will be posted at a later date.

Instructions on how to complete the grievance form will also be posted on this website at a later date. Please visit this page again for more details.

It is recommended you begin by watching a  3.5-minute NYS YouTube video entitled, "Is Your Assessment Fair," to help you understand this process.
