Tax Appeals Can Save You Money

The majority of real estate tax appeals occur when there has been an “unfair tax assessment.” This happens, especially in a poor economy, when local governments attempt to enforce real estate laws utilizing the equalization ratio. If you are a homeowner who has been unfairly assessed, we can help appeal your tax assessment. We work diligently for our clients to ensure you never pay more than your fair share. Don’t go through the process alone. Work with the tax appeal experts at the Jon Rory Skolnick law firm.

What is the Equalization Ratio?

The Equalization Ratio is formula used by your local municipality to assign a value to your property in order to assess property taxes. Often this assessment is inaccurate, because the municipality has not assessed your property’s value since the height of the market, and you end up paying unfair property taxes.

If you feel your home or property was assessed inaccurately and your property taxes are too high, contact the Law Office of Jon Rory Skolnick today for a free consultation.
