Commercial Services

Property taxes are often the largest and fastest growing expense associated with owning a commercial property.

Many property owners regrettably believe this expense is uncontrollable. It is in a property owners' best interest to have their assessment reviewed each year.

Further, the need for property tax representation is growing as property tax burdens continue to increase while the process for obtaining a tax abatement is becoming more difficult.

Analyze Assessed Value vs. Fair Market Value

Property Tax Advisors, Inc. offers a complete market analysis of any commercial property. We review the property's assessment, research comparable sales, perform an income analysis, thoroughly review the issues particular to the property, and discuss our findings with you. If the research indicates that a property is over-assessed, we will formalize the market analysis to use as evidence of market value while providing representation on all property tax matters.

Property Tax Advisors has reviewed hundreds of independent appraisals completed by certified appraisers. This has given us the understanding of many different approaches to appraisal techniques and allows us to be well versed in what appraisals will be successful in achieving a tax abatement.

Tax Abatements & Appeals

One of our biggest strengths is our knowledge and experience obtained from working exclusively as a taxpayer representative since 1993, which has given us the ability to prepare a convincing argument for achieving a tax abatement.

  • File abatement applications with municipalities. (March 1)
  • File tax appeals at the state level - BTLA or NH Superior Court. (Sept. 1)

Appraisal & Market Analysis

Our firm proactively tracks and researches commercial market activity throughout northern New England. We have access to numerous commercial databases and are continuously corresponding with brokers, owners and tenants. Our proactive approach, along with our knowledge and experience having worked on hundreds of properties, gives us the ability to not only perform appraisals on commercial property, but we can do so in a short turnaround time.

Representation

Our service is effective taxpayer representation, allowing us to minimize our client's property tax expense. We do this by providing representation though all phases of the tax abatement process which includes:

  • Meeting and negotiating with assessors throughout the year, before or after filing for abatement and/or appealing to the state.
  • Representation during municipal revaluations (which occur every five years).
  • Representation at hearings in front of the BTLA and NH Superior Court.

LYDALL TECHNICAL PAPERS, Rochester, NH

When Chris Snow first introduced himself and his business to me I must admit I was skeptical. With little to risk and a lot to gain (and no effort or paperwork on our part) it sounded too good to be true. I decided to try it. We not only got a big reduction in our assessment but also a rebate check from the town.   

MAILHOT HYDRAULICS, Hudson, NH

Property Tax Advisors obtained a $24,219 abatement for The New Meadows apartments. After filing an appeal, they were able to negotiate an additional $88,028 reduction in our property tax bill, for a total annual savings of $112,247. I would heartily recommend their services.
