The Tax Certiorari Practice represents commercial, retail, hotel and residential property owners in administrative and judicial proceedings protesting real property assessments in New York City and throughout the nation. In addition, we represent owners and developers in negotiating and obtaining valuable tax incentives and exemptions, such as those emanating from the ICIP, as well as advising on the real estate tax structures in PILOT agreements for important sites such as the World Trade Center and Battery Park City. We are also involved in cutting edge real estate tax reforms and have worked with such notable industry groups as the Real Estate Board of New York.
Among our tax certiorari experts is a former Presiding Justice of the Appellate Term of the New York Supreme Court, a former President of the Tax Commission of the City of New York, the former Chief Assessor of New York City and the former Chief Real Estate Tax Counsel to the New York City Department of Finance.
