Need Help With a Property Tax Matter?
Tax issues get complicated quickly -- and property tax issues
can be some of the most technical, complex matters you’ll come across in your
business or personal life. Whether you’ve received a notice from the IRS or
have questions related to a business or personal property tax matter, you will want an
experienced attorney to help you.
Every property tax situation is unique so you will need advice and
a solution tailored to your individual needs. You’ll want guidance on questions like whether your case is something that can be handled through negotiation or is it more likely
to need a more formal legal process? A good lawyer well-versed in property tax
matters should know the answers to these and other questions you have.
With something as complicated as property taxes -- and intimidating if it involves the IRS or another governmental agency -- it’s crucial to know your case is in capable hands. Having an experienced property tax lawyer on your side can make all the difference in the outcome of your case.

Ready to Meet With a Property Tax Lawyer?
Before hiring a lawyer or law firm, make sure to speak directly—preferably in person—to the attorney who will be primarily responsible for handling your case. Consider bringing to the conversation a list of questions and any documentation related to your case. Remember that you don’t need to hire the first lawyer you consult with and that, first and foremost, you want a lawyer you trust.
What to Ask a Property Tax Lawyer
When gathering your thoughts and documents, think about what you’ll want to ask the lawyer. Consider including on your list questions about:
- the lawyer’s background and expertise in tax and property tax matters
- the lawyer’s experience and success in negotiating with the IRS and government authorities
- who else will work on your case
- how attorneys’ fees will be charged (contingency, hourly, flat rate, retainer) and what other expenses you might have related to your case
- how long the case might take, and
- the lawyer’s initial impressions of your case and options.
