Send us your Notice of Assessment. If the Notice is not available, send us the property address or the parcel identification number. We will review the assessment and then discuss with you the potential for a tax reduction. This consultation is free.
We provide services on a contingency fee basis. Clients pay no legal fees unless a refund is received. Your only up-front cost is the State of Michigan filing fee which will range from $125 to $600, depending on the amount in controversy. In some cases, an appraisal is needed to achieve the maximum tax reduction. There are no further costs to the taxpayer.
