No. The grievance process is almost always in advance of the tax year.
Yes. You have one opportunity to file a grievance every year. Once a tax year’s deadline passes, there is no recourse to file for that year. Filing a grievance each year ensures that you will not miss an opportunity to lower your taxes. Waiting for a resolution, which may not come until after the next filing deadline, could cost you in taxes down the line.
In Nassau County, the tax grievance process generally takes about two years from beginning to end. We begin accepting authorizations in the fall, then file with ARC in the winter and spring, negotiate with ARC by the next fall or winter, go to court if necessary the following summer, before the assessment we’ve (hopefully) won takes effect in the fall. The process is long, is all done in advance, and every year we are dealing with multiple tax years from the past, present, and future.
No one knows! Call your Receiver of Taxes, ask that question, and you will get the same answer. It’s not knowable. What is certain is that if you can get your assessed value reduced from the tentative value the Assessor determines in advance, then you will pay less than you would otherwise be destined to pay.
Yes. However, homeowners who file for themselves may not get the reduction they deserve. Many are unprepared and don’t have the time, experience, data, or knowledge to deal with ARC and small claims court. We have 30 years of experience, and all the tools we need to negotiate your case to the best possible reduction.
In general, no. There are 64 villages in Nassau, each with its own way of doing things. That includes different deadlines, norms, processes, paperwork, offices, rolls, data formats, etc. Each village typically has too few households to be worth the close attention of a tax grievance professional. Every few years though, when we feel that the village rolls have gotten way out of line with reality, we select a few villages that we think are worth challenging. For 2023-24, though, we aren’t challenging any village assessments. Of course, we don’t bill for any village savings either.
No. If you sign with more than one company, you will delay your case. You might even end up with no grievance at all, if duplicate representation is not resolved in a timely fashion.
We are a small team of dedicated professionals who tend to each and every client individually. People also tend to call all at the same time — when the authorization period opens up in September, when the tentative assessed values are issued in January, when big tax-related news breaks, when ARC and SCAR decisions come in, when bills go out, etc. Please make sure to call Monday to Friday, 9 AM to 5 PM, always leave a message if you don’t get a hold of someone, and know that we will always call you back. You should also feel free to write us any time, at info@TaxCorrectionAgency.org.
