At Metropolitan Realty Exemptions Inc., we pride ourselves on servicing our clients for the past fifteen years in all of their property Tax Incentive Program filing needs. At MRE we aim to alleviate the burden of the developers who struggle with increased property taxes liabilities following completion of construction due to increased improved value which is coupled with the complexity of constructing a new building or the alteration of an existing building. We are therefore committed in making the property tax filing as easy as possible.

It is important to note, that some of the filings for Property Tax Incentive Programs must be submitted prior to the issuance of initial new building or alteration permits. In addition, a project’s eligibility is also dependent on it’s layout and unit mix. Therefore, it’s imperative to be in contact with our professional staff at “Metropolitan Realty Exemptions” during the planning stages of construction in order to ensure the obtainment of the maximum benefits.

Our staff will guide you with the utmost professionalism and advise you on how to proceed, which will result in huge savings in property tax liabilities.
