Upon written engagement, Fitzgerald Law Group will take whatever steps are necessary in order to obtain the lowest possible legal property tax assessment. Our approach is 100% transparent and the client is always kept closely advised as to all substantive developments in the case. After a case is concluded, we continue to monitor the property’s assessments and review the tax bills for accuracy.
We take great care to ensure that our services are provided at a reasonable cost. When requested, we offer retainer agreements that are customized to suit a particular client’s needs.
Comprehensive services include:
A physical inspection of the property and review of the Assessor’s records in order to ascertain accuracy:
An analysis of data relative to the subject property, for the purpose of determining its fair market value.
A report to the client of our findings with specific recommendations as to the most appropriate and cost-effective means of minimizing the assessed valuation.
Preparation, filing of Appeals, and presentation of evidence before the Assessor, Board of Review, Property Tax Appeals Board, or in the Circuit Court, if necessary.
Advice regarding the probable property tax ramifications of prospective purchases or leases of business or investment grade real estate, tax incentives / abatements or exemptions.
RCRA and CERCLA Liability
We represent property owners and taxpayers with demonstrated RCRA and/or CERCLA liability.
From time to time, we are consulted by other property tax attorneys who find themselves in the midst of an assessment proceeding and for various reasons, are feeling challenged. Depending upon the need, we are available for an array of services ranging from the rendering of a second opinion of the appeal, overseeing the appeal, or even conducting an adversarial proceeding.
