Gainesville, FL (PRWEB) July 15, 2014
Florida property tax appeal firm CRE Property Tax Group, LLC announced today it will soon offer on its website a complete package of directions and tools Florida residential taxpayers may utilize to determine the reasonableness of their ad valorem assessment. “All Florida counties will soon send out their proposed property tax assessments, the ‘TRIM Notices’. This is our gift to our neighbors, our community. Our plan is to have the guide and accompanying resources up and available to download for free, just in time for when North Central Florida receives their TRIM Notices,” said Kelly Suggs, C.E.O. of CRE Property Tax Group LLC. “The focus of our business is commercial real estate tax appeals. But our experience has shown us that many taxpayers also want to know if their residential values are reasonable.” The company reports they hope the guidance and tools to be made available will help the public determine if their residential values are in fact reasonable and whether a taxpayer ought to request a reduction in the market value. “Of course some residential taxpayers will review our guide and do-it-yourself online resources and then decide to retain professional assistance anyway.” Suggs makes clear that CRE Property Tax will be happy to represent taxpayers in either an informal request to review their value or pursue a more formal Value Adjustment Board administrative hearing.
Kelly Suggs made his mark in ad valorem property taxation, working in the field as a public servant for 20 years before retiring. “Kelly worked under the tutelage of Ed Crapo, the elected property appraiser, where he developed a reputation of looking out for the taxpayers,” says David Walle, C.O.O. of the company. “In fact, Kelly has made presentations in both the US and Canada concerning ad valorem taxation and has been invited by property appraisers in other states to present his approach on the proper valuation of golf courses. Together we are pleased to offer our joint expertise as embodied in our soon to be released manual, CRE Property Tax Group’s Residential Tax Appeal Guide: The Insider’s Guide of How to Challenge Your Property Tax Assessment , at no charge to Florida taxpayers.”
Upon receiving their TRIM notices in late August, interested taxpayers should visit the website CREPropertyTax.com and go to the area labeled DIY. “Of course we still offer residential taxpayers full representation for a charge, as we do with the bulk of our clients in commercial real estate,” states Walle. CRE Property Tax represents residential parcels from beginning to end for a flat fee $150.00, complete. Commercial clients typically pay a small fee per parcel plus a contingency “reduction fee” as a percentage of taxes saved. “Our intent is to address the needs of so many residential taxpayers while letting all of them know that our newly formed company is here to serve them all,” says Walle.
