The Town of Penfield Board of Assessment Review emphasizes to applicants that, under provisions of the New York State Real Property Tax Law, the tentative assessment set by the Town of Penfield Assessor is presumed to be correct.

If a property owner wants an assessment reduction, he or she has the burden of proving to this Board that the assessment is not correct.

In support of a claim for an assessment reduction, a residential property owner may submit to the Board of Assessment Review any of the following: 

  1. Recent appraisal with a market value estimate.

  2. Purchase contract reflecting current or recent market activity of the property (Multiple Listings) involving an arm's length transaction or marketing effort, excluding foreclosure and short sales.

  3. List of recent sales of similar properties in the neighborhood including sale price, building sizes, and date of sale.

  4. Real Estate broker's opinion (written) of market value with supporting documentation
    of comparable sales.

If a property owner is not able to provide to the Board credible market evidence showing that an assessment is too high, the Board will sustain the tentative assessment.
