LOCAL AND REAL PROPERTY
TAXATION

We address local and real property tax issues with the same intensity, creativity and overall business perspective we apply to internal revenue tax issues. In addition to advising clients on all aspects of local and real property taxation, we also provide overall tax planning and assistance in the conduct of audits, appeals and litigation. We have represented clients before the Municipal/City/Provincial Treasurer’s Office with respect to disputed local business taxes, and before the Municipal/City/Provincial Assessor’s Office, with respect to disputed real property taxes. We have also litigated a number of disputed real property assessments and disputed local tax assessments before the Local Boards of Assessment Appeals, the Central Board of Assessment Appeals, and the regular courts.
