Grievance Day

Grievance Day is the fourth Tuesday in May.

The Grievance Board is a three member board which reviews your tax assessment in cases where you do not agree with the property assessment published on the May 1st Tentative Roll.

The Board meets once a year, on the 4th Tuesday in May, to hear and rule on taxpayer complaints. The Board acts independently of the Assessor and has the authority to sustain or override the decision of the Town Assessor.

Complaint forms and instruction booklets "How to Contest Your Assessment" outlining the grievance procedures are available online. Please follow the link below if you are interested in more information.

Assessment records are available for review in the Assessors office.  The Tentative Roll is available to view online within the first 10 days of May.

The Assessor's office does not participate in the decisions made by the Grievance Board. They are an independent body and the Assessor's office receives their decision at the same time as you. The Assessor's office, therefore, does not have any information to assist in answering specific questions you may have about a Grievance Board decision. If you have any questions, they should be forwarded in writing to the Town of Union Grievance Board.
