Tax Refund Denial Benefits Multiple Municipalities and Public Entities

With deep experience in all areas of complex municipal law, Hodgson Russ has a proven track record of success in representing municipalities on challenging real property tax assessment cases.  In a case involving several public entities in multiple jurisdictions and a large publically traded telecommunications company, partner Michael Risman successfully defended the clients, which included a regional county, city, two villages and five school districts in a Supreme County Court over the taxability of fiber optic cables. The outcome helped save our clients more than a million dollars over a six-year period.
