Cobra does all the work. There is no court appearance. There is no home inspection. A challenge is filed with the Assessment Review Commission. Any settlement offer is communicated to the client. Cobra negotiates and leads the process for you. If the challenge to the Assessment Review Commission is not successful or the offers are not satisfactory, Cobra will file a small claims assessment review, the cost of which is only $30. No reduction, no fee. If there is a reduction, Cobra charges the lowest rate in the industry. Cobra charges only 40% of the tax reduction secured through the assessment reduction.
Nassau and Suffolk homeowners can file a grievance once a year, which is your right to challenge the assessment that is set on your home. The assessment value affects your property taxes and reducing your assessment saves you money. If you do not challenge, you will be paying for Nassau and/or Suffolk county and town and school tax increases, every year. When others successfully challenge, those who do not challenge pay even more in taxes.
Cobra files your property tax assessment challenge, which is called a grievance.
