Why Is P.T.R.C. Inc So Successful?

Success for us comes when our clients are happy and getting their hard earned money back. Success in this field doesn't come easy and we know that first hand. Our almost 30 years in this business have taught us lessons that we apply each and every year and we know the 2019 filing period is going to bring a lot of the same success for our clients: 


Our Payment Structure 
We want to start you off with a little question if we could... Would you work harder if we paid you $100 upfront, or if we said you can earn more based on the job that you do? This is our theory here at P.T.R.C. Inc. We want our talented staff to use all of their abilities to earn our clients the highest possible reduction so they can get their percentage of the reduction. If we don't earn you a reduction, we don't get paid!  

Our Connections 
We have developed relationships over the years with the assessment review boards in both Nassau and Suffolk counties. These relationships help our clients greatly and we are extremely grateful for all the people we get to work with on a daily basis. We have been doing this since 1990 and every year we seem to get better and better. Be sure to grab your piece of the tax reduction pie this year!

Our Staff
Our team has handled over 260,000 assessments over the years and secured millions for our clients. For that reason, we consistently see familiar faces year after year and we continue to see results for people all over Long Island. Getting one reduction is not the end of the line for you! There is money to be made everywhere and our team know exactly where to find it!

If you have never worked with us before, now is a great time to get started! Our team is waiting for your applications and we know that reductions are in your near future. 

Submit your application here and let us know if you have any questions!

Do Your Research 
When you are painting your house, the first concern that comes to mind is finding someone who is qualified for the job. The second concern is probably the fees that are included. When it comes to tax reductions, we assume you probably have a fairly similar evaluation process. As for our qualifications, P.T.R.C. Inc. has been reducing Long Island property taxes since 1990 and we have secured over 260,000 successful assessments! As for the price, we charge NO FEE if you aren't granted a reduction.

Submit Your Application 

  • Once you are done, you will receive a confirmation email from our team to let you know we have received your application. 
  • Your application will start in the review boards and if we can't get a reduction there, we will go to the Small Claims Assessment Review for appeals. 
  • We will stop at nothing to get you the highest possible reductions! 

Plan What to Do With Your Reductions
We have been successful in securing millions of dollars for our clients over the years and this season is going to be no different. Whether it is a few hundred or a few thousand dollars, there is plenty to do with the money. You can save and invest. You can splurge on some great additions to your home. Or you could go on a nice vacation. Whatever you choose, just remember who got you those reductions when it comes time to file next season!

Big Savings for Nassau County Homeowners

When it comes to lowering property taxes on Long Island, there is only one name you can trust-- P.T.R.C. Inc! We have been in the business since 1990 and over that time we have helped people just like you with their outrageous property taxes. Our rule of thumb is; if you think you are overspending, you probably are!



Are You Over Paying? 
The answer to this question is most likely yes. Long Islanders pay some of the highest property taxes in the whole country because of the public school system and property value. What happens a lot is that when the tax rates change, property taxes may not adjust with it and that is where we come in! We want to get you and your family the lowest possible rate allowed by law.

Important Information

  • Property taxes should be reviewed on an annual basis! 
  • There is NO reason to fear a tax increase. Your taxes will not go up because of this process. 
  • Some homeowners are even overpaying by thousands of dollars a year. 
  • Municipalities like Nassau and Suffolk County will only accept grievances ONCE per year. 

No Reduction= No Fee 
Our team of experts comes at no cost to you! We get paid based off of a percentage of your reductions so we are motivated to get you the maximum possible reduction. If your grievance makes it to the Small Claims Assessment Review (SCAR) there will be a $30 Fee to ensure your claim is heard. We have been very successful at this stage of the process and we have secured MILLIONS of dollars in reductions for your neighbors... so why not for you?

If you are interested in filing a grievance, we have made it fast and easy for you via our website. Everything you need is right there for you and we look forward to lowering your taxes this season.

If there are any further questions, call 516/631-484-0654 or email info@ptrc.com!

Tips to Simplify the Morning Routine

So you want to get out the door at the same time everyday but you don't want to get up any earlier than necessary. How do you accomplish this seemingly impossible feat? The answer is with organization and preparation, kind of like your property taxes! Planning ahead is always your best option»

Think Ahead With Breakfast 
Breakfast is an extremely important meal, but who has time to cook one in the morning? The best thing to do is cut up fruit over the weekend and add that fruit to a waffle, oatmeal or something you can make quickly. It keeps the breakfast meal nutritious but it doesn't force you to get up any earlier! 

Avoid That Snooze Button 
Snoozing your alarm clock always seems like a good idea at the time, but for some reason it never turns out that way. You become more frazzled as a result and then nobody is happy-- especially your boss! Try charging your phone in an outlet that is far away from your bed so that you get to sleep quicker and you actually have to get out of bed if you were going to turn off the alarm. 

Let the Sun Help 
It might be irritating at first, but the first thing you do in the morning should be to open your blinds. If it is a cloudy day, flick on the light to shock your senses! 

Groove Right Through
Having a radio system that is cued to turn on at a certain time is a great way to wake up the house. Music is proven to release positive hormones which also help wake you up from a deep sleep. Tunes also offer a great way to start the day and put you in the right mood for success. 
 
Organize Important Items
Make sure your keys and wallet are in the same place, and make sure this place is easy to find. There is no time to waste on your way out the door and hunting down these items can certainly waste a lot of time.

Now that you have so much extra time, maybe you can fill out your tax grievance application this weekend! We have successfully handled over 260,000 assessments and we want you to add to that number. Let's lower your taxes together! 

If you have any questions, call 516/631- 484-0654 or email info@ptrc.com!
