Property Tax Protests and Appeals | Abatements
Property Tax Protests and Appeals; Abatements
Our attorneys are highly experienced in navigating the administrative process which governs property tax protests as well as filing appeals in the district court system when the administrative process is exhausted. In Colorado, real property is valued by the County Assessor in which the property is located every two years. If your property valuation increases, the corresponding tax burden can make a serious impact. If you think your property has been over-valued, you have the time-sensitive right to protest or appeal the valuation. Garfield & Hecht is intimately familiar with the real estate markets in which we are located, so we are in the position to understand first-hand how your property is evaluated by the County Assessor and its appraisers and to analyze and distinguish the factors used by the County Assessor in valuing your property. Our many years of experience in protesting property values gives us an edge in effectively communicating with the various levels of government during the protest process. Garfield & Hecht can also provide guidance and advice for property owners who have missed the protest or appeal deadlines, as there may be an alternative option such as filing for a tax abatement.
