Law firm offers business property tax appeals
Churchill Legal Group, PLC, a Bloomfield Hills-based team of real estate attorneys, certified appraisers and valuation experts specializes in challenging high property tax assessments on behalf of commercial property owners. Commercial property owners have until May 31 to file an appeal of their tax assessment with the Michigan Tax Tribunal. Churchill encourages owners of any type of income-generating property to contact them if they feel their property is over-assessed. Therefore, nearly every commercial property owner can benefit from an appeal,” explains Paul DePorre, a Churchill principal.
Appeals are filed against the city or township where the property is located, and a hearing is conducted before an administrative law judge in Lansing, to determine whether tax relief is warranted.  This process usually takes about two years. Churchill works on a contingency basis and offers a complimentary, preliminary analysis to determine whether a property is over-assessed. For more information, call 248-341-3774 or visit
