Partner Michael P. O’Grodnick, Esq. prevails at Trial before the Tax Court

After a multi-year battle with the Township of Franklin (Somerset), Mr. O’Grodnick prevailed after a Trial before the Hon. Michael J. Gilmore, J.T.C. in the Tax Court of New Jersey.  Mr. O’Grodnick represented an owner of a residential house on land that was previously condemned by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Agency.  The Court found that that since the NJDEP condemned the land for the 3 mile run reservoir, a public use that was never constructed, the subject land was exempt from local property taxation and that only the house could be assessed for purposes of municipal property taxes.
