Tax Grievance Process Pushed Back to June 1

The Huntington Town Board voted Tuesday to push back the property tax grievance complain period to June 1.

    • For the current 2020/21 tax year, the grievance complaint period starts on June 1 and ends at  8 p.m. on Tuesday, June 23.
    • Grievance Complaint forms will not be accepted before June 1.

 The Board of Assessment Review  can hear complaints for the 2020/21 tax year remotely.

The town said it will try to develop a fair procedure for hearing grievance complaints.

“In an attempt to ease the burden of the financial hardships the current public health crisis has placed on many of our residents, on April 2nd, I requested an Executive Order that would allow the Town to extend the time our residents have to file a grievance complaint on their property tax assessment; thankfully that request has been granted,” said Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci, who sponsored the resolution to move the grievance period back one month.

More information on the Grievance Procedure and BAR hearing procedures may be found online or by contacting the Assessor’s Office at (631) 351-3226 or [email protected] Monday through Friday between 8:30 AM and 4:30 PM.
