There are two levels of formal review:
- Administrative review – the “grievance” process is conducted at the municipal level. The deadline for filing Administrative Review is the 4th Tuesday in May.
- In order to pursue judicial review you must first go through administrative review
- Includes two options:
- Small Claims Assessment Review (SCAR) – a low-cost option available to most homeowners;
- Tax certiorari proceedings in State Supreme Court – to pursue this option, you should contact an attorney. The deadline for filing a Small Claims Assessment Review or a Tax Certiorari is 30 days from the filing of the Final Assessment Roll.
