Every year, owners of real property have the opportunity to grieve their real estate taxes and potentially lower the tax assessment on their property for the following tax year. Tax grievance day is the third Tuesday in May each year. This year the deadline for filing is May 15, 2018.
Success or failure depends on a number of factors, including the quality of the application and the comparable properties used to support one’s grievance.
Senior partners David Dubin and Chris Kelley have saved clients upwards of $550,000 in real estate taxes in the towns of Southampton and East Hampton over the past five years alone. If the initial filing is denied, we also have the ability to dispute the denial in a court of law.
