Our real estate attorneys have extensive real estate tax law experience not only in Montgomery County but also in counties throughout eastern Pennsylvania like Philadelphia, and also New Jersey. We have pursued tax assessment appeals for properties of all types, including affordable rental housing, utility, and condominium properties, as well as tax exemptions for properties owned by non-profit entities.

Our real estate attorneys have negotiated payment in lieu of tax (“PILOT”) agreements and real estate tax abatements for new construction under Pennsylvania’s Local Economic Revitalization Tax Act (“LERTA”) throughout the Commonwealth, and have participated in the negotiation of tax increment financing agreements with local taxing officials. Our real estate attorneys are also familiar with the complexities of Pennsylvania and Philadelphia’s real estate transfer tax statutes and regulations.

If you’re confused by tax laws or facing a legal issue and need a real estate attorney near you, call our law firm. We have offices in Doylestown and Norristown in Pennsylvania and in Cherry Hill in New Jersey.
