The Board of Assessment Review (BAR) is the body of officers empowered to hear and determine complaints in relation to assessments.
In most towns, the BAR meets on the fourth Tuesday of May.
Applications in relation to assessments on city, town and village assessment rolls must be made on Form RP-524. In general, a separate application should be submitted for each separately assessed parcel. All relevant parts of the application form must be completed. Failure to do so could result in dismissal of the application and preclude subsequent judicial review.
