Commercial taxpayers and their representatives are facing increasingly aggressive procedural hurdles and legislative efforts when challenging their real property assessments. From form-driven income and expense submission prerequisites, to the weaponization of procedural motion practice, to attempts to alter the constitutional and statutory concepts of value or ownership interests in property, some assessing officials seem to focus on everything but value. The panel will discuss recent efforts to play the procedural shell game, change the statutory framework, and generally avoid a review on the merits. The session will feature specific examples from various states across the country, with a solutions-based focus that should be applicable in any jurisdiction. The discussion will emphasize strategies to protect your clients and obtain substantive review.
