Please read our FAQ for answers to common questions about the commercial property tax grievance process. If you’d like to go ahead and get started, please call us at 914-348-9473 or contact us.
Will my taxes go up as a result of the grievance process?
Your taxes will never be increased as a result of your filing a grievance. They can only go down.
Will I have to appear in court?
It is not necessary for you to appear in court. We make every attempt to lower your taxes at the administrative level. However, if a legal proceeding is commenced on your behalf, you will never have to appear in court. We handle everything for you.
How long will this process take?
If we are able to reduce the assessment at the administrative level, your reduction could come within a year to 18 months. However, it may take longer in some instances when we must move for judicial intervention.
Are there any fees I should know about?
There are no fees due unless we receive a reduction of your assessment.
Will the value of my property go down?
Absolutely not. Quite the opposite. Your value will increase if there is a grievance in place and if your tax assessment is lowered.
What happens if I miss the deadline?
If you miss the deadline, you lose that tax year. You can never file retroactively. So it is important to make sure that you don’t miss the date!
