Small Claims Assessment Review (SCAR)

If you are dissatisfied with the determination of the Board of Assessment Review, you may seek judicial review of your assessment pursuant to Article 7 of the Real Property Tax Law (RPTL).

If you are the owner of one, two or three family residential structure and reside at such residence, or, if you are the owner of unimproved property which is not of sufficient size as determined by your assessing unit to contain a one, two or three family residential structure, you may seek small claims assessment review pursuant to Title 1-A of Article 7 of the RPTL. Petitions for judicial review must be filed within thirty (30) days of the last date allowed by law for the filing of the final assessment roll for your assessing unit, or the published notice of such filing, whichever is later. Petition forms for Small Claims Assessment Review may be obtained from the County Clerk's Office.
