Real Estate Tax Appeals

O'Reilly Rancilio has a strong focus on litigating real property tax disputes resulting in reduced property taxes for owners and lessors of commercial and industrial properties. The decision to challenge a tax assessment involves many factors, including, but not limited to the following:

  • Reviewing the assessment
  • Analyzing sales for comparable properties
  • Determining the market value of the subject property

Practice and procedure before the Michigan Tax Tribunal is governed by specific statutes. Further, the tribunal has its own set of rules and procedures apart from the standard Michigan court rules. These procedures and deadlines are strictly enforced and, therefore, experienced legal counsel is essential in protecting your rights as a taxpayer. At O'Reilly Rancilio, our Michigan real estate lawyers have that experience and knowledge to guide you through every step in the appeals process, including the following:

  • Initial consultation to determine whether an appeal is warranted
  • Filing the initial petition
  • Conducting discovery
  • Negotiating with the assessing unit
  • Interviewing and consulting the appropriate and necessary expert witnesses
  • Determining the appropriate method of valuation for the subject property
  • Motion practice
  • Trial
  • Appeal of tribunal decision
