Step One: Establish Your Market Value

Develop an estimate of your property’s market value. You can learn how to estimate the value of your home or contact an appraiser or other real estate professional. You’ll want to look for sales between 7/1/2020 and 7/1/2023.

Anyone who wishes to challenge their assessment must submit information to support your determination of the property’s market value. So, you must determine your market value before filing a challenge.

Step Two: Complete the Grievance Application

All applications must be filed with the Assessor’s Office on or before May 29, 2024.

Additional Information

If you are assessed fairly but feel your taxes are too high.

Assessors do not determine your property taxes. If you feel that your assessment accurately reflects the market value of your property but that your property taxes are still too high, you may wish to address this matter with the taxing jurisdictions that impose taxes in your community—the school board, county legislature, city council, town board, fire district, and other special districts. The Assessor can explain how property taxes are calculated, including what property tax exemptions are offered in the Town of Cheektowaga.
