Property taxes can be extraordinarily expensive, especially with Long Island’s high tax rates compared to the rest of New York. While property taxes are needed to pay for services, and it is fair that they are charged to residents, you should never be expected to pay more than your fair share of taxes. So, how can you challenge your tax bill and save money?

In this episode of Hilary Topper On Air, Hilary interviews Jeff Gold, Managing Partner at Gold Benes, LLP.
