Lawyers investigate and defend challenges to assessors' alleged errors

Agencies and contractors who conduct tax assessments have work backloads that often do not allow for a detailed review of each property. We can identify and seek relief for problems including:

  • Factual errors such as property size
  • Incorrect classification of structural improvements
  • Failure to recognize relevant property conditions

We value your time and money, so after a complete review, we will provide candid advice as to whether a property tax appeal is in your best interests.

Attorneys working to correct and defend assessment and valuations

Setting the actual property tax rate across an entire community depends on the relative value of each parcel. This is usually calculated by looking at the sales of comparable properties. However, as any landowner realizes, even when two properties seem identical to an outsider, their actual value might be far from equivalent. This can lead to an appeal by a property owner to the assessor, board of equalization or Utah State Tax Commission. Our Utah lawyers will take the time to learn the intricate details that can lead to a sharp defense of fair market value of the real and personal property, or business valuation.
