What to do about Property Tax Escalations
Chances are you’ve received your new property tax assessment statement. Depending upon the state you live in, rules for protesting your assessment offer you a small window to do so.
Outside of income taxes, the single largest recurring charge for commercial property owners are Property Taxes. In most states, owners are required to pay taxes on both their real estate as well as their personal property. These charges are often an immense expense and a constant hit to the bottom line. To be ensured you are not being overcharged on your Property Taxes, an industry specialist with extensive market experience in valuation, tax, and law should be retained.
As far back as 1796 there has been some level of property tax in the United States. By 1900, more than half of the states enacted clauses that required taxation of property. Over the past hundred years, local governments, municipalities, townships, school districts, and other bodies have enacted specific methods for the calculation of property tax in their jurisdiction. This has led to innumerable protests and legal mitigations that continue to this day.
Any Commercial Property Owner who pays over $50,000 per year in Real or Personal Property Tax is worthy of a free review to determine potential reduction opportunities.
