The Annual Real Property Tax Appeal Countdown Has Begun


The 2010 Property Tax Environment is Ripe for Appeals and Represents a Real Opportunity for Significant Tax:

With measurable declines in the real estate market, evidenced, by rising vacancy and falling rental rates, the pursuit of a real property tax appeal has never been more compelling. In fact, municipalities are already bracing themselves for what is expected to be a tsunami of tax appeal filings. Last year, unprecedented levels of appeals were filed and towns have been left scrambling since. Adjustments to assessment levels were largely in order for 2009 and will continue to be justified in the present tax year. Towns are aware that their property assessments are not in line with the current economic climate and declining property values. It is therefore expected that significant adjustments are either going to occur voluntarily, through compromise, or involuntarily, by virtue of the mandates of Tax Court judgments. Consequently, for those who take action, it is likely that a reduction in assessment and a resulting reduction in taxes will be achieved.

The only way to take advantage of the opportunity to realize significant tax savings and improve one’s bottom line is to pursue a timely filed tax appeal. The 2010 tax appeal filing deadline is April 1, 2010 so there is little time to waste.
