Property Tax Division
Assessment Audit - We review the assessment and compare it with other assessments and the costing manuals employed by the Assessor. We report back to our client by letter with a thorough analysis of the assessment calculations, detailing our estimate of the correct assessment, the potential tax savings, our recommended course of action, the probability of success and the associated cost.
Negotiation - If the client wishes us to conduct the negotiations we prepare a position paper and open negotiations with the Assessor. We are able to conclude over 90% of all appeals by negotiation. However if we are unable to reach a satisfactory settlement we report back to our client by letter detailing our recommended course of action, the probability of its success and the associated cost.
Appeal Board - We appear on the client's behalf to present the case before the Appeal Board. In most cases legal counsel are not required.
PAMS™ Property Tax Manager – We are registered as the client’s agent with the provincial assessment authority. We review the Assessment Notice, determine if the property is overassessed and if so file the Appeal. We handle the assessment negotiations, and if necessary the Assessment Appeal Court appearance.
