Feb 7, 2020Tax Certiorari & Condemnation Law
Once again the Nassau grievance period to complain about your commercial and residential property real estate tax is extended until April 2, 2020. There were so many changes; many increases and decreases that there is an unprecedented number of filings protesting the assessment. That means you will continue to get solicitations from “volume house” firms to file tax certiorari protests. While it is a good idea to have your tax assessment reviewed, it is not every property that is over assessed. It is a property is purchased for $800,000 in a neighborhood of $800,000 homes, then filing a grievance when your assessment is only $650,000 might not be a wise idea. Blindly, filing a tax protest without having it reviewed by an experienced practitioner could be a waste of time and possible increase in future assessments. Click here for Richard Fromewick's blog.
