Did you miss the property tax grievance deadline last year? Many Suffolk County homeowners did, others filed their grievance and saved thousands of dollars a year! I’ve stated it in the past and will say it again, what do you have to lose?? Furthermore, if you are not filing a property tax grievance this year then you are essentially subsidizing your neighbors that do.
While there are some unscrupulous companies out there who charge upfront fees or deny cases that they deem to be too small, there are some, like The Heller & Clausen Grievance Group, located in Suffolk County, NY who charge no upfront fees. “They accomplished what other tax grievance companies failed to do in the past,” says Steve M. of Rocky Point, NY, located on the North Shore of Long Island. “They reduced my taxes by more than $7,000 a year, I saw no real downside, since there was no money due unless they were successful, now I tell all my friends and neighbors about them,” continues Steve.
“They accomplished what other tax grievance companies failed to do in the past.”
So folks take Steve’s advice. Stop over paying, and grieve you property taxes this year! You have nothing to lose, except maybe some of those taxes!
The friendly staff at The Heller & Clausen Tax Grievance Group are available year round at 631-782-3177 to answer any questions you may have if you are considering filing for a reduction.
Suffolk County’s crippled real estate market should make most homeowner’s property values take a nose-dive this year. The one silver lining in that dark cloud – you might have a great shot at lowering your property taxes. If you think you’ve been over assessed, you have a right to protest the assessment – which could mean tax dollars in your pocket. Let’s face it, in this economy every dollar counts!
The 2018 Tax Grievance season is here and it is setting up to be a big one! This is mainly due to another dismal year in the yet to recover Suffolk County housing market. In fact, according to the Long Island Board of Realtor’s (LIBOR), the county’s median sale price has tumbled another 4.9% since just one year ago. As if that’s not bad enough, looking deeper tells an even worse story. If you are the lucky owner of a Townhouse, or happen to live in a Home Owners Association (H.O.A), your property values are down a whopping 23.9% in the last 12 months, says LIBOR. A bad thing if you are trying to sell, a great opportunity if you are thinking about grieving your taxes!
If you have been on the fence about grieving your property taxes (even if have done it in the past, you will likely qualify again), due to the continued decline of the Real Estate Market, 2018 is the year for you to fight back and grieve! To make it even more appealing, some companies, such as Heller & Consultants Tax Grievance, located in Rocky Point doesn’t charge any upfront fees. Even better if the grievance is unsuccessful, you pay nothing. Heller & Consultants Tax Grievance by calling (631)782-3177, or you may also apply for a property tax grievance online.
