Now is the Time to Consider a Property Tax Appeal



If a town where you pay real estate taxes is undergoing a revaluation or reassessment, it is particularly important to review whether or not you should file a real estate tax appeal this year. Various categories of real estate have been hit especially hard by economic conditions including hospitality, retail, and commercial office buildings. If you are experiencing lower rent, vacancy or higher operating expenses for these types of properties, Brach Eichler may be able to help you obtain a reduction in your 2023 property taxes.

Even if your property has not been adversely affected by recent economic conditions, you should nevertheless carefully review your assessment to determine if an appeal is appropriate this year. The following factors should be considered:

  • Do you have reason to believe your property has been adversely effected by economic conditions or that your taxes are too high or unfairly assessed?
  • Do you own or lease property in a municipality currently undergoing a reassessment or revaluation?

Brach Eichler attorneys thoroughly review each case before filing an appeal so that we only file appeals that we preliminarily determine will result in a reduction of taxes. Many of our cases result in a substantial reduction in tax either through settlement or trial. We have over 50 years of experience prosecuting tax appeals.
