Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
Are you using the property for commercial or residential purposes now?
How long ago was it zoned commercial?
Have you just received notice that they want to adjust the taxable amount?
If so, have you filed an appeal to any initial decision?
Ok, then your recourse here is to object to any reassessment as commercial, which it sounds like you have done, and then file an appeal to their attempt to reappraise the property if you are unable to reach a settlement with them. If you still are not able to reach a settlement, then you can file suit again your local court make a formal ruling. ..But in most situations like this if you put up a fight to any reassessment, they will back down rather than have to defend in court....Thanks. ..Barrister
