What is a Tax Grievance?

A Tax Grievance is a formal complaint made by a property owner to the town when they believe they are overpaying in taxes. The town will hear your case and decide whether you deserve a reduction or not. The majority of property owners get denied at BAR (Board of Assessment Review) but you can appeal your case at SCAR (Small Claims Assessment Review).

Residential Property Tax Grievance

Residential property tax grievance is a complaint made on your behalf, against your town’s assessed value on your home. Your assessment equates to a fair market value. If it can be shown using comparable sales that your home is worth less than this fair market value, we can obtain an assessment reduction which will reduce your property taxes.

Commercial Tax Grievance

Commercial tax grievances must be filed through a tax certiorari proceeding which is a legal process that challenges the assessment of commercial (and potentially all other) properties. The objective of this proceeding is to lower your assessment which will proportionally reduce your real estate taxes

Our Reviews

We just got our second reduction over the last few years, both successful grievances accomplished by Aventine. We get lots of offers from firms in the mail, but will only use Aventine.

Edmond O

Aventine was able to work through the entire pandemic and get me a significant reduction in my property taxes. I highly recommend them for anyone in the area.

Most importantly, the Aventine folks were a pleasure to deal with. Their agreement was straightforward and simple and they produced results (an 18.5% reduction)...Thanks Aventine!
