How do I fill out my grievance application; can someone from the Assessment Bureau help me or fill out the application for me?
Unfortunately, the staff of the Assessment Bureau cannot fill out the application for you. When you grieve your assessment the grievance is against the Assessment Bureau, therefore the burden is on you, the taxpayer, to determine how the application is to be filled out and what information is needed to plead your case.

A staff member from the Assessment Bureau may assist you by providing the grievance instructions from the Office of Real Property Tax Services (ORPTS), answering general questions related to the grievance period, or photocopying information from the tentative assessment roll. Please note that photocopies can be made for $.25 a page in the office but the tentative assessment roll can also be found on the City’s website.
