Tax Assessment Appeal and Consulting
It is not uncommon for residential and commercial real estate owners to be paying large real estate tax bills or have large increases in real estate taxes from year to year. Because real estate taxes are based on the assessed value of the subject property, it is important to know if the property is assessed correctly. If the property is assessed to high, you may be paying more than your fair share of the real estate taxes. Our appraisers will analyze the current real estate market, and expertly prepare an appraisal of the subject property as well as provide expert testimony and guidance in the assessment appeal process.
