How Tax Grievance Works/Our Fees

Suffolk homeowners like you are feeling the pain of high property and school taxes. You may have filed for STAR or other exemptions, but you may still be paying more than your fair share of taxes.

A Property Tax Grievance is a formal complaint that is filed contesting a town's assessed value of a specific property. We can't change the calculations and rates the State and your town use to determine your Property Taxes. What we can challenge - and have reduced - is the taxable value of your home. If the Tax Assessor lowers that, the total taxes you pay are reduced, because your assessment is lower.

Many property owners worry that if they file a grievance, their taxes may be raised or someone from the assessor's office will come to their home. We can assure you that neither of these things will happen. Upon filing a tax grievance, your property tax assessment can be lowered or remain the same, but can not be increased, and no one will come to your home (except our own assessor who reviews your property only from the outside).

  • There is no risk involved in filing a tax grievance. Your assessment can not be increased because you filed a tax grievance
  • There are no home inspections
  • A reduction does not affect your other exemptions such as STAR


OUR FEES

First: if we do not obtain a Property Tax reduction for you, there is absolute no cost to you! (that's a pretty good incentive for us to do a great job for you!)

When you give us authorization to file a Tax Grievance on your behalf, we handle the entire process for you. If we are successful in obtaining a Property Tax reduction for you, our fee is 50% of your first year savings. The savings you reap in subsequent years is entirely your own. Here's an example of how it works:

  • Your taxes are calculated by multiplying your assessment by your tax rate.
    For example, if your assessment = 5000 and your tax rate is $1.00, your taxes are $5000.

Assessment

Tax Rate

Taxes

$5,000

$1.00

$5,000

When your assessment is reduced, our fees are based on the difference of what your taxes would be under the old assessment and what they are under the reduced assessment. For example, if your old assessment was 5000 and your reduced assessment is 4000, with a tax rate of $1.00, your savings would be:

Old Assessment

$5,000

$1.00

$5,000

New Assessment

$4,000

$1.00

$4,000

Tax Savings

$1,000

Our Fee (50% of your first-year savings)

$500

Our fees are based on 50% of your savings in the first tax year (for example, if we save you $1,000, our fee is $500). Tax savings in subsequent years are entirely yours.

IF THERE IS NO REDUCTION, WE DO NOT CHARGE A FEE.

Please Note: We need a certified appraisal of your property to file the grievance, which must take place within six months of the filing deadline. You may provide this to us, or we will conduct the appraisal on your behalf, in which case we charge a $75 fee if you receive a tax reduction. IF WE DO NOT OBTAIN A REDUCTION, YOU ARE NOT CHARGED THE APPRAISAL FEE.

Should your tax grievance be declined, we may file an appeal if we believe we can still win a reduction for you (PLEASE NOTE: Not all cases are appealed). If we appeal your case, New York State charges a filing fee of $30.
