MOUNT PLEASANT, N.Y. Westchester residents dont need Brian Stroub to tell them real estate taxes here are some of the highest in the country. But sometimes, this grievance lawyer at Westchester Tax Relief can help relieve that burden when a home is valued at a higher amount than it should be, based on the town's standards.
Everyone thinks they pay too much in taxes, and thats another argument. But its about the value set by the town and neighborhood, says Stroub.
So how do clients know whether they have a case to file a grievance? When working with the Valhalla-based law firm owned by Mark Campbell Esq., Stroub goes through many channels to answer that question.
He first researches the home's value by checking out details of the neighborhood, taking pictures of the property and learning the town demographics. Then, if a client has a case, he tries to work with the town to come to an agreement. If the Assessment Review Commission rejects the grievance request, Stroub will help the homeowner to file a Small Claims Assessment Review petition to appeal that decision before a judge.
Stroub is a lifelong resident of Westchester, growing up in Yorktown and studying at Pace University Law School in White Plains, which helps his general understanding of local home values.
His work can correct miscalculations in home value, substantially easing homeowners tax burdens, in some cases.
We do help people having a tough time with the economy and are able to put money back in their pockets, which is a big help these days, Stroub says.
