Mission Statement

Administrative review of an assessment is a necessary prerequisite to judicial review. It is made by filing a grievance complaint with the assessing jurisdiction (i.e., Town of Amherst). The grievance complaint is then reviewed by a Board of Assessment Review. If the Board of Assessment Review does not reduce the assessment or if the reduction is not to the satisfaction of the taxpayer, then the taxpayer may choose to resort to the courts for judicial review of the BAR’s decision.
