Our talent is in identifying property which has been valued too high by the Assessor’s Office, determining the cause of the over assessment, developing support for the appropriate tax assessment, and negotiating with the Assessor’s Office for an adjustment to the assessment. We also prepare for and conduct hearings before the Assessment Appeals Board (AAB) on those occasions when negotiation with the Office of the Assessor is not fruitful.
