3 Points to Keep in Mind When Appealing

Right now, the safety of your team members, residents, and the uncertainty resulting from this pandemic have likely pushed property taxes to the far regions of your mind. Not to worry, we exist to handle your property taxes so you can rest assured they are being addressed while you handle the critical issues facing your company.

Rising unemployment and government-mandated stay-at-home orders have a real impact on your residents and their ability to pay rent, directly impacting your gross income. Government restrictions have limited the ability to address non-payment and much about this year remains uncertain.
