“Are you untimely in protesting your tax assessment and beyond the time limitations prescribed by the Tax Law?
Did you receive your tax assessment by certified mail at your last known mailing address?
Also, did you engage the services of a prior representative that did not receive a copy of your tax notice by certified mail and failed to protest this notice in a timely manner?
Our firm successfully represents and protests tax assessments for taxpayers that may be considered beyond the time limitations prescribed by the Tax Law and may be denied an appeal because of their untimeliness, which interferes with the jurisdiction conveyed in protesting a tax assessment.
The requirements of Tax Law § 1147(a)(1) for the issuance and mailing of a tax assessment are specific. In specific cases, if it is found that the Division of Taxation fails to follow it own mailing procedures then the taxpayer has the right to an administrative tax appeal and the right to protest the tax assessment so that the merits of the matter can be addressed.”
