What to Expect at a Property Tax Hearing

Fighting Your Property Taxes

If you are attending a property tax hearing, there are some things that you should be prepared for beforehand to ensure the best possible outcome for your case. Read on to learn more.

If you do not agree with the amount of taxes that you are said to owe for the 2020/2021 tax year, you need to file an appeal and get a confirmation from our experts at P.T.R.C., Inc. stating that you are eligible to appeal this process. We must get this information by the deadline or it will not count.

Filing time is once a year, don’t miss the deadlines! Applications must be received in our office by 2pm:

Nassau                 2021/22                 March 2nd, 2020 

Suffolk                 2020/21                 May 19th,  2020   

Preparing for a Property Tax Grievance Hearing

Before going to this hearing, you need to review the appraisers’ information on the home by reviewing the condition, utility, and desirability. If it is sound that the appraisal was not accurate, then it will often be corrected if this information can be validated.

The condition of the home will have a direct impact on the property tax. If there is rotten wood, paint peeling, problems with the foundation, or leaks in the roof a person needs to obtain an estimate for the repairs. They may be able to get their tax reduced based on this information.

Before entering the hearing all of the documents should be in place and any relevant information about the home should be documented and brought to the heating. A person should have their original appraisal and the revised version they feel is correct. Three new analyses of the home will need to be performed and have similar results for the organization to reduce the amount of taxes on the home. All of this information must be presented to them in writing.

As a homeowner, you are entitled to file a property tax grievance. If you are interested in learning more about the process or are interested in starting your tax reduction, contact our experts at P.T.R.C. today. Nassau: (516) 484-0654, Suffolk: (631) 484-0654
