Welcome to William K. Block Tax Cert
The firm’s primary area of concentration is in the area of real property tax assessment reduction and exemption from real property taxation in the City of New York.
We have prepared Applications for Correction of Tentative Assessed Valuation and appeared before the New York City Tax Commission on properties with assessed valuations from under one hundred thousand dollars to over one hundred fifty million dollars. We represent all classes of property except for tax class one properties (one to three family homes).
We have represented high valued commercial and residential taxpayers and not-for-profit organizations in seeking tax exemption and tax abatement from the real property tax.
In addition, we prepare real property tax opinions for taxpayers as well as for attorneys for use in their preparation of condominium offering plans for submission to the New York State Attorney General.
We have negotiated and drafted Payment In Lieu Of Taxes (“PILOT”) agreements on behalf of taxpayers with respect to property owned by the City of New York and various public authorities owning real estate in New York City.
