Getting taxes reduced! Help from a legal expert

As a property owner, your real estate taxes are based on your property’s assessment.  Your property’s assessment is set by the local municipality where your property is located and is supposed to be based on your property’s fair market value.  Sometimes properties are fairly assessed, but sometimes properties are over-assessed in which case property owners are paying more than their equitable share of real estate taxes.

With the help ofJames G. Dibbini & Associates, P.C., it is possible to protest your property’s assessment and potentially get your taxes reduced.  The first step in this process entails filing a formal complaint (also known as a grievance) with your local municipality within a specified time called the grievance period.
Every municipality sets it own grievance period as follows:

January 1, 2011 –  January 15, 2011
