The first thing to look for is deadlines for applying; if you miss the deadline, you will need to wait until the next year to file your grievance. Deadlines may vary depending on the area that you live in. You should also make sure to take note of when challenges for a previous year’s assessment are accepted. There are situations when an assessment may turn up wrong. If you feel that your assessment was done improperly and the amount is too high, you may pursue a challenge to the assessment. This process can be pursued by you individually or by a professional whom you hire for the job.

Home Appraisals

Check with your local assessment office to find out if they require a home appraisal in order to file a Suffolk County tax grievance. Include as much information as possible when you file for a tax grievance-photos of your home, letters about your home, and the appraisal. If you are not able to receive an appraisal, there is still an option for you. You need to find three properties that are comparable to yours and include them in the package you send in. These properties must be in your area and cannot include shorts sales or foreclosures as these will lessen the value of your appraisal.

Online Grievances

There is the option to file a Suffolk County tax grievance online instead of showing up in the offices. Suffolk County has teamed up with a company who will provide you with the option of filing your grievances online in the comfort of your own home. You will still need to provide all of the same information as you would in person.

Hiring Help

Determining how to file a tax grievance may be difficult to understand.  Suffolk County does allow individuals to hire professionals to assist them with the application process. While you are not required to hire a professional to apply for the grievance, there are many inherent benefits available for choosing this option. Tax grievance professionals provide the opportunity for the grievant to avoid the legwork and using vacation hours in order to deal with the grievance. Instead, the professional they hire will take on the project and produce a desired result for their client.
