Project Announcements

ASSESSMENT DISCLOSURE NOTICES FOR THE 2020 REASSESSMENT PROJECT HAVE BEEN MAILED

On September 2nd, 2019 Disclosure Notices were mailed to all property owners in the City of Buffalo.

The reassessment project on all real property in the City of Buffalo is complete. Residents and business owners will soon be receiving the disclosure notices in the mail. The 2020 Assessment Preliminary Disclosure Notices include assessments based on current market values to ensure that every property owner is paying only their fair share of property taxes. Each assessment disclosure mailer also contains an information sheet on locations, dates and times for Informal Review Sessions where property owners can seek assistance and speak with the project contractor about their specific assessment.

If, in your opinion, your preliminary 2020 assessment does not accurately reflect market value, you should schedule an informal review meeting with a representative of ENPM, Inc. by calling (716) 559-1952, no later than October 9, 2019. If you have any questions regarding your Preliminary Disclosure Notice or the informal review process, please call (716) 712-5550. All informal review sessions are by appointment only and will be scheduled during regular business hours, as well as on evenings and Saturdays. Informal Review Sessions will be held at various locations throughout the City.The locations, dates and times of these Informal Review Sessions can be found within the Project Documents section of this web page.
