SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Feb. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As many as 35% to even 75% of the properties throughout the State of Michigan are grossly overtaxed. From Oakland to Kent County, from Mackinac County to Ingham and Leelanau - everywhere in our great state.   What's more alarming is that local municipalities don't notify you when you are overpaying, spending your hard earned money -unnecessarily! Help is now available to all Michigan residents.


To help consumers avoid being over taxed, 1-800- LAW-FIRM, PLLC has invested in developing a technology they call the Property Tax Widget (the Widget).  Property owners now have access to a vital, free online tool, which calculates whether or not they are overpaying their taxes at the click of a button.  Just visit their website at 1800LAWFIRM.COM and click on Property Tax Appeals to access this user-friendly property tax evaluator for residential, non-primary and commercial properties.

If the Widget determines that a property owner is overpaying their property tax, 1-800-LAW-FIRM, PLLC will appeal their property tax at their local board of review or at the Michigan Tax Tribunal, if necessary. There is no cost for the appeal process unless 1-800-LAW-FIRM, PLLC wins the appeal. There is a flat fee if the appeal is won at the local jurisdiction and a flat fee plus a percentage of the tax savings if the appeal is won at the Tax Tribunal.


As soon as property owners enter their information, the Widget obtains verified data from the most trusted real property data and analytics sources in the country. The Widget then analyzes the data using analytics formulated through the careful analysis of thousands of Michigan Tax Tribunal decisions and successful tax appeal appraisals. The Widget can predict tax appeal results and estimated settlement outcomes to a 95% certainty, a level that been unheard of until this Widget was developed.
