Happy New Year!

Happy 2022!

We hope you and your family/friends/loved ones have had a wonderful holiday season and are staying warm, safe and healthy. These are difficult days and we are all facing a lot, so we are hopeful that you are doing well despite all that is happening in and around our cold, embattled City.

The new assessments are due to be published on or around January 15th. The City publishes these assessments on their website and you can search for your property/properties once they have published them. There’s no way to know when they will actually be published, especially given the fact many City workers (and agencies) are working partially, if not entirely, remotely. As an aside, the fact that the City is functioning and handling real estate tax-related business at all is commendable.

While we don’t know what the new assessments will be, we have been and are ready for the forthcoming issuance and will be sending out paperwork to you for each of your properties, so whether you have one property or 100, we will get you all the paperwork you’ll need to protest your assessment(s).

Of course, should you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us without delay as there are statutory City deadlines for this paperwork; accordingly, we request you address these papers as soon as possible and return them to us quickly so we can review everything and make sure there is nothing — documentation, data, paperwork — we need that we do not have prior to proper filing.

Please also note that if you are out of town – temporarily or otherwise – as a result of COVID, weather, vacation or something else, please advise us accordingly so we know where to send your paperwork. The majority of this material is double-sided and while we can send paperwork to you via email it makes far more sense for us to send paperwork to you via US Mail or UPS/FedEx. Please keep us advised so we know where you would like this material sent.

Should you have any additional questions or concerns, please reach out to us sooner rather than later so we can ensure your concerns are met without delay.
