How Tax Grievance Works/Our Fees
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.
- 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
If we do not obtain a Property Tax reduction for you, there is absolutely no cost to you — That’s a pretty good incentive for us to do a great job for you!
After you completete Tax Grievance Authorization, we handle the entire process on your behalf. When we are successful in obtaining a Property Tax Reduction for you, the county and township of your property will determine our fees on your first year savings.
