Frequently Asked Questions


Why may you be entitled to a reduction?
Quite often, people pay real estate taxes based on the assessed values from years ago. If the value of your home has gone down since the assessment, you still end up paying property taxes based on your past assessment. In order to fix this situation, we help you file a property tax appeal otherwise known as a property tax grievance. If your home was worth, for example, $900,000 a few years ago and now it would sell for $600,000, why should you be paying taxes based on $900,000? Filing a property tax appeal to lower your real estate taxes is one of the few no-brainers in today's economy for lowering expenses. If you live in Westchester County NY, take a minute to review successful examples of our Westchester County Property Tax Reduction Service. For other counties see above sample of savings.
What does it cost?
There is NO CHARGE until we succeed in reducing your property taxes. Our fee of 60% of the first year's reduction is payable AFTER you receive legal notification that your assessment has been lowered. Unlike many of our competitors, there are NO up-front fees and NO hidden charges. Our charge is for the first year only, in all subsequent years you keep 100% of the savings!
Why Sokol Group?
We represent you by building your case and filing it with the local Assessment Review Board. We know what types of evidence are acceptable, how to navigate the courts and how much of a reduction can be expected. We do the paperwork and make the court appearances for you. We even pay the appraisal and court filing fees.
