Brought to you by the Government Affairs Committee
Presented by DuPage County York Township Deputy Assessors Fred Beno & Jerry Rudman
Want to make your business better, but don't know where to turn? We're bringing in experts from DuPage County to lay out best practices, and help property managers stay on the cutting-edge.
The tax attorney has different things he needs from the property manager to be able to fight the taxes, i.e., rent roll, vacancy reports, marketing materials, and they might want an appraisal done. The data can be cumbersome if you are not keeping accurate, up to date records and the filing period is short. It’s also very interesting to understand how the bill is generated to get a feel for how the total bill comes about. Retail tenants pay a percentage of tax increase as do also larger office tenants in some instances. Those tenants want to know that you are diligently fighting tax increases and the leases state that they can fight them if you are not. Those tenants also pay their proportionate share of that tax attorney bill, so again, they want the most bang for their buck.
Specific topics you will learn:
How long can you fight taxes in arrears (very useful if you take over a property where taxes were not fought recently).
- What components make up the tax bill – how is it compiled to get to the grand total you pay.
- How do you fight your taxes.
- Do you need to have an appraisal to fight your taxes and when is one helpful?
- What records/data will you need to fight your taxes?
- How is your property assessed?
- How often is it re-assessed? This is different from county to county.
