Any “aggrieved party” may seek a tax abatement. Determining whether a party is aggrieved depends on a number of factors. Aggrieved parties may include lessees and parties acquiring title after the April 1 valuation date. Contact us to find out of you qualify, or click [here] for more information.
Also of note….
What happens if someone makes a partial payment toward a disputed debt and calls it “payment in full?” If someone disputes money they owe and tenders a check or letter stating “payment in full,” the payee/recipient may be at risk under the doctrine of “accord and satisfaction” if he or she deposits the payment. Accepting a partial payment of a disputed debt characterized as “payment in full,” or some other, similar notation, may be considered a settlement of the disputed amount. While endorsing the check with limiting language such as “under protest” may help preserve the right to sue for the difference, one should consider doing so only if the risk of not receiving the difference is tolerable.
