Is Your Assessment Fair? / Contesting Your Assessment

Is Your Property Assessment Fair

For Peekskill, the grievance period each year is June 1st to the 3rd Tuesday in June. When June 1st falls on a weekend, this period will be from the following Monday, June 2nd or 3rd to June 17th or 18th.

Complaints on Assessment (grievance forms) are not accepted before the publishing of the tentative assessment roll (June 2nd) or after Grievance Day (June 17th).

Grievance Day is always the 3rd Tuesday in June (June 15th, 2022). You do not need to appear before the Board of Assessment Review, but if you would like the board to hear your case, you can set up an appointment with the Assessment Office after June 1st. You can also walk in during the posted hours, but you may have to wait. Hours will be posted at a later date.

Instructions on how to complete the grievance form will also be posted on this website at a later date. Please visit this page again for more details.

It is recommended you begin by watching a 3 and one-fourth minute NYS YouTube video entitled, "Is Your Assessment Fair," to help you understand this process.

To the left, a link to the grievance form and instructions will be posted between June 1st and 15th. Also linked is a publication from the NYS Department of Tax and Finance entitled, "Contesting Your Assessment in NYS (PDF)" as well as their 4-minute YouTube video by the same name.

Peekskill's valuation date is the same as the taxable status date - May 1st every year. Please click the link for Peekskill's key assessment dates from the NYS MuniPro webpage.
