The Provincial Assessor bullied this bottling plant; so we saved them $39,000 per year! Upset by their Realty Assessment, Crystal Beverages sought relief by utilising the appeal process. The provincial assessment authority, the Orwellian named Geographic Information Corporation (now Service New Brunswick), promptly increased the property assessment from $2,407,000 to $2,846,000, presumably to teach them a lesson. This would have increased their property taxes by a further $20,000 per year. Our Property Tax Division took the matter to court. The Appeal Board not only rolled back the increase, they also reduced the existing assessment, so our client received further tax savings of $39,000 per year.
