Property Tax Advisory

Our clients frequently turn to us well in advance of acquiring property to avoid surprises and project likely outcomes.

Because New York property taxes are among the highest in the United States, the success of a deal often depends on strong forecasting capacity and deep knowledge of the local tax system in every town, village, and city across the state. We provide clients with high-value advisory guidance to minimize the impact of taxes and maximize the value of their properties.

Our attorneys and analysts utilize their expertise – and often local relationships – to structure a financial model based upon our client’s income and expense projections to anticipate likely tax burdens in the future. In some cases, this allows our client to structure the transaction for an optimal level of taxation.

We encourage our clients to consult with us early in the due diligence period to reveal potential concerns and minimize wasted effort and costs.
