Property Tax Appeals

Connecticut Property Tax Appeals Attorneys

CT Real Estate Lawyers

For a variety of reasons, most municipalities in Connecticut are over-dependent upon property taxes as a source of revenue to fund town/city budgets and education budgets. Residential property values appreciated at a very high rate between 2002-2006. Commercial and industrial property values also appreciated at a healthy rate during that period.

As a result, taxpayers have been examining the value they receive for their taxes and, more often than not, the affordability of their investment in light of recent tax increases. We have extensive experience prosecuting and defending property valuation cases and handling property tax appeals for residential, commercial and industrial properties of all shapes, sizes and locations.

We assist property owners in towns that we do not represent in evaluating their tax assessments, correcting any errors, appearing before boards of assessment appeals, obtaining an appraisal, attempting to amicably resolve excessive assessments and, if the foregoing do not achieve the client’s goals and needs, pursuing an appeal in Superior Court.

For numerous towns, we provide tax appeal defense in cases challenging both real property and personal property assessments, whether under C.G.S. 12-117a or 12-119.
