Real Estate Tax Appeals
McKirdy & Riskin's experienced attorneys help New Jersey commercial, industrial, special purpose and residential property owners determine when best to appeal their real estate tax assessment—and when it is best to take no action.
We have successfully handled real estate tax appeals at county tax boards around the State, in the New Jersey Tax Court, and New Jersey Supreme Court, representing owners of virtually every type of New Jersey property—from large industrial facilities to Fortune-500 office complexes; from national-chain retail facilities to single family homes and small business properties. We know the law and New Jersey property values, and our attorneys also serve as special counsel on real estate tax appeals for several New Jersey towns. We weigh the short and long-term benefits and risks to help our clients take the appropriate action at the right time.
With real estate taxes being the greatest source of revenue for most New Jersey cities and towns, real estate tax assessments significantly impact all property types. Yet annual assessments do not necessarily mirror the current market – especially when property values are on the decline. The difference can be staggering to a property owner: Yesterday’s red-hot real estate environment can be reflected on your annual tax bill while the true value of your property has declined with the market. Yet we can help you fight inaccurate assessments. Call us today for a no-cost initial consultation.
