Each year, municipalities around New York State participate in the grievance period. This is a time where residents of a municipality can grieve the assessed value of their real property, not the taxes that they pay. The grievance period begins on May 1st when the tentative assessment roll is published and continues until close of business the 4th Tuesday in May or Grievance Day (this year it is May 23rd).
Completed and signed applications must be turned in to the Assessment Bureau by close of business on Tuesday, May 23rd, 2023. Applications can be found on the city of Schenectady website and the New York State Tax and Finance website.online (PDF).
