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.
According to a new 3-year study by The Tax Foundation, Suffolk County ranks number 12 in highest property taxes out of 1,824 counties in the country! Even worse, Nassau County is number 1! There – so don’t feel too bad, Nassau County has it even worse than us – still hurts when you’re writing that check though doesn’t it?
Not to mention how high Property Taxes affects our already depressed real estate market, therefore, affecting your ability to sell your home. I will delve into that subject more in a future article. So what can you do about it?
Well, the good news is there is one thing you can do. That’s right, file a Long Island property tax grievance. And, while some residents may only save a few hundred dollars a year, others will save thousands! Our company’s record tax reduction occurred just last year in 2011 weighing in at over $7,000 annually. I know what you’re thinking.
