Grievance Day

On the Tuesday after the long holiday weekend, which marks the traditional beginning of summer, it's Grievance Day. For everyone unhappy with their tentative assessments, Justin Maxwell, the city assessor, has released the following information about the day and the process.
The City of Hudson Board of Assessment Review (BAR) will hold its annual Grievance Day on Tuesday, May 28, at the Central Hudson Fire House on 77 North Seventh Street.
If you feel your assessment is inaccurate, you must grieve at this point to change it. Tuesday’s hours will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. As in any complete reval, we expect a large number of cases, and encourage you to take advantage of the earlier time slot.
People will be heard on a first come first serve basis, with each complaint getting three minutes to state their case and submit their information. There will be a sign-up sheet so you can anticipate when it will be your turn to grieve.
If you cannot grieve in person, you can submit your grievance to the assessor’s office on or before this Tuesday.
To submit your official grievance, you must have the RP-524 form filled out completely, as well as attaching all supporting documents to this form that support your position. The BAR will review your case and come to a determination at a later date.
According to New York State Law, the assessor is assumed to be correct. You must make a case with supporting evidence for why you believe your assessment is incorrect.
Examples of supporting documents would be comparable sales and property appraisals.
