Frequently Asked Questions

Why may you be entitled to a reduction?

Your real estate taxes are based on assessed values from years ago. The town adjusts these values every year (invariably upward) based on average, town-wide trends – not your particular property.

If your assessed value has become artificially inflated because of this practice, your home is over-assessed and you are paying more than your fair share of property taxes. To fix this situation we file a property tax appeal, otherwise known as a property tax grievance, on your behalf.

You have nothing to lose by filing. There are NO up-front fees and NO charges unless we are successful in lowering your real estate taxes. And, the assessor cannot raise your taxes as a result of filing.

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 started this business in the Lower Hudson Valley 33 years ago.  Since then, we’ve won 95% of cases and saved homeowners over $32,000,000.  We have a Certified Appraiser on staff who knows what’s happening with values in every neighborhood in Westchester, Rockland and Orange counties.

We carefully research trends based on what homes are actually selling for. Prices in some neighborhoods have come down slightly from their peak a few years ago, and this may represent an opportunity for you.

We do everything for you: assessment, forms, supporting letters, attending hearings.  Assessors know that, if they offer less than what you’re entitled to, we’ll take them to court.  There are NO upfront fees – we even pay the appraisal and court filing fees.  We only get paid if we win.
