Are you paying more than your fair share of commercial or industrial property tax in MA? If your property is assessed for more than it would sell on the open market, you are being over-taxed, and may be entitled to a property tax abatement. I'm Robert J. Gaines, Esq., President of Ridgefield Valuation. Since 1989, I've successfully negotiated over four thousand property tax abatements in more than one hundred fifty cities and towns throughout Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire, saving my clients literally millions of dollars. I prepare and negotiate each case myself. No junior associate or novice is ever entrusted to handle your case. Because of my experience, I know how to maximize your chances for an abatement. If you are over-assessed, I can spot it, and do something about it!
Another company or individual may claim that they can get the job done. But in the end, you may get a worse result... or no result. In this business, reputation, experience and relationships are the decisive factors in getting an abatement. Ridgefield has all three. I know the players and have working relationships in assessing offices throughout the state Massachusetts. I've handled almost every kind of property tax abatement, and truly specialize in this field. Industrial properties, office buildings, flex properties, large residential apartment buildings, retail properties, and virtually any kind of commercial, income producing property can be excellent candidates for property tax abatement if they are assessed by the city or town for more than their fair market value.
Personal attention to your case from the head of the company is what distinguishes Ridgefield Valuation from some other property tax firms. When you hire Ridgefield to handle your property tax matters, you've hired the President of the company; a specialist who understands the state of the art and makes a career out of getting results. I've got a personal stake in your case. Isn't that what you want from anyone representing your interests?
In Massachusetts and New Hampshire, the abatement process is handled on two levels. The first level is the local Board of Assessors. Abatement applications must be filed with the city or town, typically by the date the tax payment is due. In the event that the abatement application is denied, the matter can be kept alive through an appeal to the Appellate Tax Board. My many years of experience handling property tax matters at both levels gives you a seasoned, experienced advocate who can prepare your case, and see it through for the most optimum result.
Last year our commercial and industrial property tax in MAclients received hundreds of thousands of dollars in property tax refunds. I've included a few of the many testimonials from clients who have saved tax dollars through our efforts. And Ridgefield Valuation can help you too. But remember, there is roughly a 30 day deadline in which to file for an abatement. So contact me today and I'll act quickly on your behalf. There is absolutely no risk or up-front expense to you since we are paid only on the basis of results.
