Pro Bono Matter: Settlement with Town on Re-Levy of Omitted Taxes Based on Loss of Veteran’s Exemption on the Property

Robin S. Abramowitz of the Firm’s Litigation Practice Group successfully settled with the Town Assessor after filing a petition to strike from the client’s tax bill over $12,000 of real estate taxes re-levied based on the loss of the Veteran’s exemption.  The re-levy of taxes was retroactively applied by the Town for more than the immediately preceding year  in violation of the Real Property Law. The matter was handled on a pro bono basis when a senior citizen received notice of the re-levy of taxes in excess of $12,000 which would have caused her to default on the payment of her real estate tax bill.
