Why Are Property Assessments Important?
Property assessments are necessary to equitably distribute the tax burden among all property owners based upon the market value of their property. Properties are appraised so that some of the costs associated with providing services, such as public education, fire and police protection, roads and utilities, can be allocated to property owners in proportion to the market value of their individual properties.
What If I Don't Agree With My Assessed Value?
All property owners have the right to a review of their property assessment. The process by which assessments may be challenged involves the following three options:
- Informal Hearing
- Formal Grievance Process
- Small Claims Court
Informal Assessment Reviews Accepted Year-Round. Determinations Will Be Made March 1 - April 15. If, after an Informal Hearing, you are not satisfied with the value placed on your property, you may utilize the formal grievance procedure to appeal an assessment.
NOTE: The Informal Review does not take the place of the Formal Grievance Application.
More information on the formal grievance procedure is provided below:
- Residential Assessment Review Worksheet
- General Information and Instructions for Filing a Grievance (RP524-Ins)
- Grievance Application (RP524)
- Small Claims Worksheet
NOTE: Irondequoit requires that you submit two sets of the application with documentation.
