We protect your bottom line

You work hard to earn a profit and property taxes affect your bottom line.  It’s important for you to know your taxes are as low as possible every year and it’s our job to help you achieve that objective.

To accomplish this goal, we have assembled a team of experienced attorneys and valuation professionals.  This combination of legal and valuation expertise allows us to review your assessment from multiple points of view to find the most compelling reasons why it should be lowered.  Our attorneys then aggressively contest your assessment before the assessing officials and exhaust all appropriate levels of appeal.

To support our team, we have developed and fine-tuned systems, technology and procedures to make sure all cases are handled efficiently and effectively every day.  These tools enable our team to spend time thinking about your appeal and formulating strategies to lower your taxes rather than spending time shuffling through paperwork.

As a client of Elliott & Associates, you can rest assured we’ve got you covered.
