Experienced legal representation for industrial property tax relief

Rents for some industrial properties have doubled and tripled over the last couple of years. These rent increases have coincided with cap rate compression, making the environment challenging for property owners.

For tenants who are not only paying more for rent but are responsible for paying the property taxes, any increase in assessments can upend their projected total occupancy cost by many multiples. Fortunately, tenants often have the right to appeal their taxes.

At Skoloff & Wolfe, performing due diligence and backing it up with hard data helps our industrial property clients appeal these increased assessments.

Municipalities have had a rosier picture of what is sustainable in terms of a level of taxation. However, by focusing only on rent, they are missing the impact on the overall total cost of occupancy – whereby any increase in taxes will result in a reduction in rent.

Achieving property tax relief requires a strategic view of each situation separately

  • Taking everything into consideration, what is a realistic assessment for an industrial property?
  • How can you address an increase in your assessment, post-sale and/or post development?
  • How do you budget for what may be the new normal in industrial property tax rates?
  • What components of the property are real property versus tangible personal property, or business personal property, and what are the tax liabilities?
