The tax assessor prepares and
mails out the property assessment

This is the time of year when your stomach starts churning. The weather is generally, miserable and you know
with every mail delivery comes more bills. One of the most hated bills is the one for your impending property
tax. It's a typical form notification with the heading: THIS IS NOT A TAX BILL."
In reality, it's an early warning from the assessor's office of a probably increase in your property tax and you
only have 14 days to appeal. The assessor, by design doesn't give you much time so you're left in a quandary,
unless you contact Hoffert & Associates, P.C.

Specialists in property tax law and disputes, Myles B. Hoffert, a former CPA and prominent tax attorney heads
a firm that knows the ins and outs of your rights when it comes to property tax. They have over 83 combined
years of property tax experience and are so adroit at successful resolutions on behalf of their clients that they
won't accept a case unless they are certain to get a satisfactory resolution for you.
Hoffert charges no fees unless they have your property taxes reduced as they work on contingency. You only
pay the nominal filing and appraisal fees.

You can certainly appeal on your own but have a much less chance
of succeeding in court. Hoffert, on the other hand has gone all the
way to the Michigan Supreme Court on behalf on their clients.

Two weeks are not a lot of time to respond.
Call Hoffert now and put their tax team to work
for you. After all, we're talking about your money.
