Overview

As chair of the firm’s Property Tax and Valuation Department, Gregory F. Servodidio focuses his practice on representing businesses, nonprofits and individuals in commercial property tax appeals and eminent domain proceedings.

He advocates for property owners and lessees throughout Connecticut seeking equitable assessments of their real and personal property by municipal tax assessors. He represents clients in negotiations with municipal officials, revaluation companies and personal property audit firms, and contests inequitable assessments before local boards of assessment appeals and in Superior Court.  In addition, he assists taxpayers with the filing of personal property declarations, income and expense statements and exemption applications, the preparation of property tax projections and the negotiation of property tax related agreements such as property tax stabilization agreements.  Greg also represents individuals and entities seeking just compensation for their property completely or partially taken by eminent domain. He has litigated numerous property tax and eminent domain appeals before the Superior, Appellate and Supreme Courts of Connecticut over more than 25 years.

Greg is a member of the Institute for Professionals in Taxation and has been published in its Property Tax Report, as well as the Commercial Record, the Journal of Property Tax Management, the New England Real Estate Journal and the Hartford Business Journal. He co-authored the Connecticut chapters of the American Bar Association’s Property Tax Deskbook and Fifty-State Survey: The Law of Eminent Domain and lectures frequently on property tax and eminent domain issues. He was appointed by the Connecticut Tax Court to co-chair an advisory committee on the implementation of Public Act 95-283, which provided for significant property tax reform, and has advised the Tax Court subsequently.
