We represent various types of property owners and tenants in all facets of real estate tax litigation, including exemptions for new improvements, not-for-profits, new construction, religious and educational facilities, as well as agricultural properties. Some of our clients include developers, property owners,  tenants of shopping centers, office building management, retail, franchise, industrial and warehouse facilities, condominiums and cooperatives, multi-residential properties, and unimproved land and farms.

We pride ourselves on providing personal service to all clients, and every effort is made to maintain regular communication regarding the status of the case from start to finish. Furthermore, the our firm has strong and extensive relationships with the various municipalities, which further enhances our ability to service its clients. This is critical during the various stages of litigation concerning tax assessment review.

In additional to seeking tax reductions via a tax certiorari proceeding, our office also works closely with various Industrial Development Agencies to seek tax benefits. An Industrial Development Agency (IDA) is a public benefit corporation formed by an act of the state legislature.

An IDA transaction allows a company to operate with real property tax abatements, sales and use tax exemptions, mortgage recording tax exemptions, and in certain circumstances, with the proceeds of tax-exempt bonds. We have represented numerous real estate developers, not-for-profit entities, schools, and manufacturers in transactions with the IDA.
