ABOUT The Heller and Consultants Tax Grievance Group

The Heller and Consultants Tax Grievance (http://www.Hellertaxgrievance.com), was established in June 2008 by Adam B. Heller and David W. Clausen. Founded on the simple principal of helping their clients pay the lowest possible property taxes, the firm has quickly become the fastest growing property tax company on Long Island. With combined experience of over 30 years in the industry, they have saved Suffolk and Nassau residents over 30 MILLION DOLLARS, a figure that continues to increase daily.
Prior to starting their own firm, both Adam and David had used other well known tax grievance companies in an attempt to lower their own property taxes. After receiving minimal reductions it became apparent that existing companies were using outdated technology, and worse, settling for far less of a property tax reduction than their client’s were entitled to. After years of extensive research and proprietary system development, The Heller & Consultants Tax Grievance was born and has been winning record-setting property tax reductions and refunds ever since. Please call 866-LOW-TAXX (866-569-9299).


Mission Statement
Our sole purpose is to aggressively pursue reducing our client’s property taxes to the lowest amount legally allowable through the tax grievance process.

He’s been recognized by the likes of George Ross, Executive Vice President of the Trump Organization and star of NBC’s The Apprentice who says “Adam is simply the best on Long Island when it comes to securing property tax reductions.” His firm has saved Long Islander’s over $25M, a figure that increases with every property tax reduction he attains for his growing clientele.
