Practice Areas

The practice is limited to New York City annual administrative and judicial review of real estate taxes and applications for exemptions under the New York City Industrial and Commercial Incentive Program and the New York City Industrial and Commercial Abatement Program (ICIPs and ICAPs).
With 38 years of experience, Roy Sparber has significant expertise in New York City real estate tax laws, procedures and policies. Our ability to critically analyze, compare and contrast property values, and ultimately get reductions has been most successfully applied to properties in all five boroughs. We have reduced real estate taxes on commercial properties and residential properties of all types, including the most expensive per square foot locations:
  • Office Buildings
  • Retail Stores
  • Co-ops
  • Condos
  • Apartment buildings
  • Banks
  • Nursing homes
  • …and more
Real estate tax certiorari is the legal process by which a property owner can challenge the real estate tax assessment on a given property, in an effort to reduce the property’s assessment and real estate taxes. We are very experienced in this legal process, representing many property owners, real estate developers and managers with real estate tax certiorari proceedings.
