Why you need to attend

New York City assessors annually value 1 million properties. This year’s market value is $1.25 trillion. The resulting assessments form the bedrock of our city’s property tax system. Property taxes sustain our city. At over $20 billion, they are the single largest revenue source. But they are complicated. Many taxpayers don’t understand how the city assesses their properties. They also don’t know how to fight their assessments. Benjamin Williams, ASA will help you learn about both issues.
