HOW PROPERTY TAX GRIEVANCE WORKS
About Tax Grievances:
Even though homeowners are obligated to pay property taxes, they are not obligated to pay more than their fair share!
Property taxes are the largest expense homeowners have to pay other than a mortgage. Each homeowner has the obligation to pay their property taxes and also the responsibility to pay only “their fair share”.
Your property taxes are like your income taxes – they change every year. And just as you consult your accountant each year about income taxes, you should also consult “TAX CRUSHERS” for a real property assessment analysis. Since property assessments are subject to errors and inaccuracies … they are also susceptible to reductions and possible refunds. Just like income taxes, they have to be reviewed each year. And unlike an accountant, we will not charge a fee unless we succeed in saving you money.
WHY SHOULD YOU FILE A TAX GRIEVANCE?
Real estate values are finally stabilizing and in several areas increasing, but property taxes are still skyrocketing.
NOT challenging your taxes may cost you thousands of dollars each year. You may be absorbing an increased tax burden because other homeowners in your area have had their assessment successfully reduced.
You only have ONE opportunity per year to challenge your property taxes. DON’T MISS IT!!
THERE’S NO RISK TO YOU!
When filing a property tax grievance, your taxes cannot go up. It is a one way grievance. Your taxes can ONLY go down.
No one will come to your home for an inspection. The Appellate Division of the New York Supreme Court ruled that it would be unconstitutional.
The bottom line is that you have nothing to lose except your high taxes!
