My inspiration for this book came through my real life
experience that many face and choose to accept. I was forced to fight or be
forced from my home. Throughout the process many obstacles came my way that
tested my endurance and could have driven me to quit. I took a stance and
refused to fall prey to the system.
Municipalities count on the fact that appealing your tax
assessment can be cumbersome and many taxpayers will walk away.
With my success at each level I found the energy to go on.
This book is my success story, of seeking justice in a supreme court proceeding
to obtain a fair assessment on my home against “all” odds.
After the ordeal I felt compelled to do something to get the
word out to fellow taxpayers that have been wronged over the years in The State
of New York. If I were treated fairly I may have ended it once I obtained the
appropriate reduction in my assessment.
After numerous pleas that fell upon deaf ears I decided to fight back not only in my particular case but for
“all’ tax payers in the State of New York.
The book not only tells my compelling story it will assist
property owners in appealing their tax assessment.
I have outlined fundamental fault with the entire tax
assessment process and put together a step-by-step process that will increase
your chances in obtaining a fair assessment.
40% to 60% of HOMES in the State of New York are
either over assessed or not assessed properly. There is research and statistics
to support this.
If you choose to appeal your assessment you can realize an
annual savings on your tax bill. I reduced my tax liability by roughly $2,200.00
