The annual opportunity to challenge the assessment on your commercial and industrial property begins May 1. During the next few weeks, until May 23, you must file a grievance in the community in which your property is located. The attorneys at E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy file on behalf of their clients each year to address excessive assessments on all types of commercial properties such as offices and retail centers, golf courses, and hotels, as well as industrial properties like warehouses, light and heavy manufacturing buildings.
The past several years have impacted your operation and the real estate market in many ways, some of which you may not realize could affect your property taxes. We can assist you in investigating and, where appropriate, reducing your assessment based on our many years evaluating real property assessments and tax bills. We help you navigate the municipal administrative review process at the Board of Assessment Review and, as necessary, have the experience and reputation to take your case to trial. We have appeared in courts around New York and at all levels--the trial court, the Appellate Division and the Court of Appeals. Please contact us at 518-213-0118 to speak to Pat Seely, one of our partners, to discuss your assessment.
