Life moves fast, just fast enough to forget about grieving your property taxes. Our team at Heller & Consultants Tax Grievance wants to make sure that you are minimizing the expense of your property taxes.
Taking the time for a phone call to the experts at Heller & Consultants Tax Grievance can save you a lot of money. Adam Heller and his team help over 6,000 Long Islanders every year fight for a property tax reduction. Their efforts are highlighted by holding the record for the largest reductions in property taxes in Nassau County of $73,000 and Suffolk County of $17,000. Holding the record in both counties is an impressive accomplishment that demonstrates a high level of expertise.
The opportunity to grieve property taxes should be taken advantage of every year however some homeowners are deterred by some misconceptions about the process. Grieving your property taxes will not cause them to increase. County or town officials will not visit your home to inspect the property since grievances are filed based on public information. Grieving taxes will not affect your eligibility for STAR or VA programs that already help reduce property taxes.
Filing a successful property tax grievance will have benefits beyond a reduction. Recent changes capping State and Local Tax (SALT) deductions at $10,000 on federal tax returns mean that the amount of property taxes paid on a home has a greater impact on the market value. Studies have shown every $1,000 saved on property taxes can raise the value of a home by $10,000. Lowering your taxes by consistently grieving will help maximize the value of your home when you decide to sell.
Please remember these important deadlines so you do not miss the next opportunity to grieve your taxes.
