Representation of Owners in Property Tax Assessment Disputes

Upstate New York Commercial, Industrial and Utility Property Tax Lawyers

If you believe your commercial property has been overvalued for property tax purposes, there are avenues to challenge the assessment to reduce your tax burden. Our firm represents business owners in seeking a re-assessment at the local level or in appealing the valuation in assessment litigation.

Hacker Murphy, LLP, has an established record of favorable results in property tax abatement litigation (tax certiorari). Our Albany firm represents business property owners in the Capital District and Upstate New York, as well as the Lower Hudson River Valley.

Our clients range from small businesses to owners of manufacturing plants, power generation utilities, shopping centers, office parks, and cooperatives and condominium housing complexes. We have enabled clients to prevent large tax increases or reduce their property taxes by fighting for fair valuation.

Albany Business Owner Property Tax Attorneys

Founding partner David R. Murphy is recognized throughout Upstate New York and beyond as an authority in property valuation and tax certiorari litigation. Several of our trial lawyers practice in tax abatement. Because we also defend municipalities in these disputes, our experience allows us to help you resolve cases quickly where possible. We know how assessors arrive at their valuations and how to work with the local tax authority on your behalf.

We have been successful working with assessors to revisit valuations that are off the mark or out of sync with market conditions. If the local Assessor's Office will not adjust your assessment, we have a proven record in appeals through the Board of Assessment Review and in the courts.

Contact our Albany office to arrange a consultation. We cannot guarantee to reduce your taxes, but we don't keep cases we don't believe we can help you on. We can discuss options for legal fees, from contingency fee representation to hourly billing or a hybrid plan.
