Grievance Procedures

If you feel your assessment exceeds the fair market value of your home, you have the right to a grievance. The Board of Assessment Review will meet on Thursday May 27th to hear grievances on real property assessment. In order to be heard by the board of assessment review, you must do the following:

  • Complete NYS RP-524 and file with the Town of Waterford Assessor’s Office (now located in the town court/board chamber) by May 27th. You may also mail in the paperwork to:

Town Assessor’s Office

65 Broad Street

Waterford, NY  12188

We must receive the paperwork by May 27th.

  • Call the Assessor’s Office (518-235-9907) to set up an appointment for the beginning of May. The assessor is meeting with property owners on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays of the first two weeks of May to discuss grievances. You can meet in person (full COVID precautions will be in effect) or over the phone. Meeting with the assessor is optional; you also have the choice of providing your documentation and letting it stand on its own, or simply appealing directly to the BAR.
  • You can make an appointment at the same time to meet with the BAR, or you can make that appointment after meeting with the assessor. If you have submitted your RP-524 and your supporting evidence, you do not have to meet with the BAR; they will review your paperwork in your absence and make a decision.
  • Please send all paperwork to the assessor’s office by May 21st. Paperwork received after the 21st could result in delays with the BAR. Paperwork received or postmarked after May 27th has missed the deadline and will not be processed.
