OK, in Suffolk, Patchogue, to be exact and as I've posted before, we pay just under $15,000 in property taxes. We got something in the mail, don't have it in front of me, but we call every couple of months and they say we are on the docket and are coming up, but it has been two years! Is this normal for grieving one's taxes to take so long? Also, someone else who did it and got a savings in Dix Hills of $1,500 said they just continuously do it, every single year. The place we are grieving them did say that they are backlogged majorly................just wondering if I am being sold a bill of goods.

Just called the company and found out I have to pay $30 additional as they turned down our tax grievance and now the company is appealing the verdict. They say they don't appeal cases unless they feel they have a case, but I am feeling less than optimistic.............

I believe this year, a lot more grievances will either be turned down or granted a token reduction than in the past. Reason? Towns in Suffolk are being deluged with applications, so by doing that, some applicants will go away and not appeal--it's the path of least resistance. It's one way for them to reduce the number of applications and maybe keep a little more $$--appealing is time consuming (and the fee is $30!).

That's my theory

P.S. I filed a grievance through a company this year, because I don't want to deal with the (expected) appeal.

Yep...the $30 is the fee to basically go to small claims court. We got a 10% reduction from the grievance board, and weren't happy with that. So we filed for the small claims review, paid the $30 bucks. It all worked out in the end and we got the rest of what we were requesting.

Well glad to hear that alexei27, as I said to my husband, upon hearing of the appeal, well guess we aren't getting a reduction if they turned it down first, so we'll see. I'll keep you aprised of the verdict if it EVER comes!

Many thanks,
Brian
Can anyone recommend a good Property Tax Reduction attorney that covers Nassau County? Thanks.

Default Property Tax Reduction Consultants demanding $$$

I sold my Nassau County home last year and moved to Florida.
I got a bill in the mail from PTRC asking for money saved on my Oct 2011 school tax and Jan 2012 property tax.
I phoned them and told them that I do not live there anymore since prior to the tax savings.
They told me that while the new owner gets the savings benefit from the tax grievance that I am legally responsible to pay.
They told me that I signed a form back in 2009 and I never told them I was moving.
I do not remember what if anything I signed in 2009
Am I now legally responsible for the new owners tax savings?
