Grievance Day: Fourth Tuesday in May 


The Board of Assessment Review meets once each year on the fourth Tuesday in May to hear resident grievances in relation to assessments. The meeting is held in the Penfield Town Hall Auditorium, 3100 Atlantic Avenue, Penfield, N.Y.  The BOAR makes decisions based on evidence submitted by property owners to prove the value of the grieved property. Property owners are notified of the BOAR decision prior to July 1. 

Applications will be available and accepted by the Assessor's Office as of May 1 each year. See Assessment Documents  

Original applications must be completed and filed with the Board of Assessment Review on or before the meeting date. Applicants can choose to make an appointment to meet directly with the BOAR (typically 10 minutes) or have the BOAR review the application without a meeting. 

Grievance Appointment Process
When requesting a grievance appointment, the Board of Assessment Review requires property owners to submit the original application, four copies of the application, and supporting documentation. Please note that faxed or emailed applications may not be substituted for the original application.
