"My name is Steve Tencer and I live in Dobbs Ferry, a village in Westchester County, NY. After receiving a letter from Bruce Sokol and Associates, I realized that the assessor in my town had my house over valued and that I was paying too much in taxes. The letter from Bruce Sokol and Associates said that I could file a property tax appeal which would lower my taxes. I would not have to pay anything unless they were successful. To me this was a no-brainer. I signed the letter and they successfully knocked my taxes down about 9%. I was very happy with the services they provided and it truly required little if no effort on my part. I highly recommend others to do the same should they receive a letter from them." Steven Tencer

Bruce Sokol & Associates offer a one-of-a-kind property tax appeal service, whose goal is to lower your property taxes and SAVE you MONEY.
We've been the market leader in Property Tax Appeals in Westchester, Rockland, Putnam & Orange Counties since 1989! As such we know
what it takes to get your appeal filed with the local Assessment review board & get it accepted!
The best part of our service, is that we SAVE you MONEY or there is NO CHARGE - its a WIN-WIN situation.
Quite often, people pay real estate taxes based on the assessed values from years ago. If the value of your home has gone down since the assessment, you still end up paying property taxes
based on your past assessment. In order to fix this situation, we help you file a property tax appeal otherwise known as a property tax grievance.
If your home was worth, for example, $900,000 a few years ago and now it would sell for $600,000, why should you be paying taxes based on $900,000? With most homes down 20%-40% in value, filing a property tax appeal to lower your real estate taxes is one of the few no-brainers in today's economy for lowering expenses.
Why is it critical to appeal NOW?
When real estate values start going UP, your chances of getting a property tax reduction start going down. If you file a property tax reduction before this time however, you can save money even AFTER your property value has gone up.
What does it cost?
There is NO CHARGE until we succeed in reducing your property taxes. Our fee of 60% of the first year's reduction is payable AFTER you receive legal notification that your assessment has been lowered. Unlike many of our competitors, there are NO up-front fees and NO hidden charges. Our charge is for the first year only, in all subsequent years you keep 100% of the savings!

We know what types of evidence are acceptable, how to navigate the courts and how much of a reduction can be expected. We do the paperwork and make the court appearances for you.
