These are tough times to be a homeowner. At the same time the values of our homes are spiraling downward, our municipalities are forced to raise real estate taxes to help them face real budget pressures and constraints. We will make sure that you are only paying your fair share of real estate taxes and not a penny more! Since your real estate tax bill is based in part on the value of your home, we can file a grievance to get your tax assessment reduced.
For those of you who just bought a new house, call us today to help. With all of the things you have to do, you probably do not have the time or the inclination to grieve your property taxes. Even if you did, you would not know all the ins and outs of negotiating with experienced assessors. We will review the public records and determine if your Tax Assessor has properly estimated the value of your new home. For existing homeowners, there is a good chance that your home is improperly assessed. It often happens that there is a divergence between the assessment and the value of a home over time. However, your property assessment should reflect the current, lower value of your home. In either case, if your Tax Assessor is currently over-valuing your home, then you are paying more than you should for property taxes. We can help save you money by reducing your real estate tax bill.
We have successfully reduced the tax assessments for numerous homeowners in your area. Once you retain us, we will start the legal proceedings to have your assessment reduced and to lower your tax bill. Our fee is based upon the reduction we get for you and is 65% of your first year’s tax savings.
If you decide you want us to grieve your assessment, just complete, sign and return both of those papers. Upon receipt of that paperwork, we will evaluate your case and contact you further about filing your claim.
