Board of Assessment Review

The Board of Assessment Review is a quasi-judicial body appointed by the local government to hear complaints on assessments and is the first step in the administrative review process for contesting the assessed value on a property. This page is intended to be a resource for Board of Assessment review members to access training and reference materials. Property owners looking to learn more about contesting their assessed value should consult these resources from New York State.
