Appealing Hotel and Resort Property Tax Assessments in New York State

Hotel Check In Bell

Hotel and resort properties in New York often find themselves facing unwarranted tax hikes as a result of their property tax assessments. At the law firm of E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy our lawyers represent hotels, resorts, golf courses, and other commercial properties statewide in property tax appeals or tax certiorari. We have a record of notable results in tax assessment reduction litigation.

Attorneys with Industry Experience

Hotels typically sell for a price that includes both the business value and property value. However, only the value of the real estate may be considered in setting the property tax assessment. Many hotels and resorts are overtaxed because the value of the business is included in the property assessment.

Our lawyers understand how to separate the business value of the hotel property from its real estate value, leading to more realistic property tax assessments.

Our tax abatement practice is headed by partner David R. Murphy, an accomplished trial attorney with more than 35 years of experience in tax appeals and real estate litigation. Mr. Murphy has authored sections of “Review and Reduction of Real Property Assessments in New York” published by the New York State Bar Association.

Alternative Fee Arrangements

Our property tax assessment practice offers alternative fee arrangements for tax certiorari cases, including contingency fee and blended hourly and contingency fee arrangements. Under a contingency fee arrangement, our attorney fees would be a percentage of your property tax savings if we prevail.
