Commercial Tax Appeals

Covid-19 has detrimentally affected the value of many commercial properties in New Jersey. Commercial property owners are experiencing lower rents coupled with higher vacancy rates while insurance premiums and other expenses continue to increase.  Many municipalities in New Jersey have not recognized these facts and as a result, property taxes on commercial properties continue to escalate every year.  If you own an investment property or are a business owner with an owner-occupied building, managing your property taxes can impact your profitability.

The attorneys at Spiotti & Associates have substantial experience contesting the assessments of commercial properties. The team has worked on thousands of commercial tax appeals, ranging from multi-billion dollar assessments to small owner occupied properties. We have experience dealing with all aspects of tax appeal litigation and the valuation of commercial properties. Unless the Municipality where your property is located completed a municipal-wide revaluation this year, the deadline to file an appeal is April 1st – so please contact us at your earliest convenience to discuss a potential appeal.

  • Office Buildings

If you would like to contact us for a free consultation to determine if an appeal of your commercial property is warranted, simply click on the following link and provide us with your name, telephone number and e-mail address along with the full address and use/type of your property (e.g., office building, warehouse, multi-unit apartment complex).  We will send you a questionnaire that is tailored to the type of commercial property you have, which will help us more accurately determine whether your property is over-assessed.  If we think we can help reduce your assessment based upon your answers to the questionnaire, we will send you a Fee Agreement to complete.
