Property Tax Law

Legal representation is needed when property owners:

  • feel that their property has been over-assessed
  • feel that the property appraiser has wrongfully denied an exemption (such as homestead or agricultural)

Act promptly. There are extremely short time periods that govern ad valorem property tax challenges, so it is important that you act promptly and have an experienced Sarasota property tax lawyer on your side. At The John Chapman Law Firm, P.A., I have an extensive background in property tax matters and have represented both the property appraiser and taxpayers – both commercial and residential. Whether your property is a high-value residence, a shopping center, manufacturing facility, or agricultural, I have the experience and the knowledge to counsel you on your best options for securing a positive result.

Providing full-service property tax dispute services

Property tax disputes are argued before the county Value Adjustment Board or in circuit court and the processes for disputing in these two venues are completely different. There can be numerous advantages and disadvantages to either venue depending on the unique circumstances of your case. I’ve handled hundreds of VAP appeals and have tried numerous cases in circuit court, and I am fully prepared to advance your interests in either venue and will use my expertise to guide you towards the most advantageous venue for you.
