Handling Disputes Over Property Tax Assessments
The current state of the real estate market throughout the U.S. is in turmoil. Though the market seems to be stabilizing, many homeowners are still seeing their property tax assessments increase while their actual property values have stayed the same or decreased.

I gather all important documentation that pertains to both the true market value standard and the common level range standard before determining how to move forward with your case. I work closely with my clients to put together information on recent property sales in their neighborhood for comparison, along with working with real estate appraisers to ascertain exactly how the property is valued.
Once all of this information is obtained, we can determine if an appeal is right for you. If it is appropriate to file an appeal in your case, I will represent you in the tax appeal hearing in front of the County Tax Board.
There are very strict time constraints for filing a property tax assessment appeal. If you believe your property has been over-assessed, you must file an appeal between February 1 and March 31. This is why it is so essential that you seek legal assistance immediately if you suspect that your property tax assessment is too high.
