No, not after the 5yr abatement expires..... more like shortly after JC processes the paperwork that is filed in order to receive an abatement. If you apply for an abatement post renovation work, your property will be reassessed using recent comps. Your new tax bill will be based on this new assessment less any abatement they grant you. If you do any significant improvements, your new assessment (even with an abatement) will likely be much more than your old assessment so your taxes will go up prior to the abatement expiring. You will pay even more taxes after it expires.

Ultimately anyone will be able to look up Dixon properties and see if they are paying their fair share post-reval. They should be on the higher end anywhere since they do above average renovations.

They may be able to kick the can on taxes, but I really don't see how they can dodge the Reval... If they do dodge it, then show up at City Hall with pitchforks...


They're not dogging anything. Just some disgruntled city hall employee or political operative trying to slander.

First it was Dixon applying for an abatement to shield from the reval, per the original post. When pointed out it's perfectly legal and automatic for a major rehab to receive an abatement, the story changed and suggest Dixon is NOT applying for the automatic abatement so it can keep its assessment low... until the reval. Lol

Home rule leads to all sorts of shady things. Tax assessment shouod be done on the county level with a rolling reval at least every five years.

As for abatements.. 1-4 unit buildings are eligible for a 5 year abatement for major renovations, regardless who owns them (owner occupied or investor). You don't report rent income on units 4 or less to the city since they are not rent controlled and are taxed as residential (tax assessment based on comparison sales.. not rent income). So what exactly is this 'special' abatement that Dixon is getting?


Dixon is not applying for an abatement after they renovate a property. If they did, the property would be reassessed and the tax on the property would skyrocket. This is what I think the OP is getting at.

You're such a loser. As has been mentioned, major rehabs are automatically eligible for a 5 year abatement. It has nothing to do with Dixon or city council.

BTW, if anyone from Dixon is reading this, please buy up some of the abandoned properties in my neighborhood in the Heights to convert into 2,3, or 4-family homes. I'm tried of the blight, and it sounds like you guys know hoe to get the job done. Great jobs guys.



Um, might want to re-think that request. Dixon owns about 6-7 houses on my block alone in DTJC. Two of them they purchased 2 years ago and they've been sitting empty ever since. Don't know if they plan to refurb them or sell them as-is, but probably the former. Dixon is usually the last to shovel during the winter and when they are doing refurb work they pay zero attention to the noise they make, starting early (like 7:00) and sometimes all weekend. As neighbors go, pretty obnoxious...


Thank for the info - in the case, nevermind.

I believe that another set of developers, the Silverman Brothers, have been dedicated supporters of a similar group (HPNA) for many, many years.

Also, I believe that the HCA's charter - and what their President can and cannot do - is clearly laid out and publicly available.

Not endorsing nor condemning HCA, Silverman or Dixon. However, if you have a problem with the city's abatement policies, spurious innuendo only diminishes your credibility.

Edit: late and I confused HCA and HPNA.

How on earth did someone like that become president of a neighborhood (NIMBY) association? This is someone these groups usually want to publicly tar and feather.

I thought that if you did enough work to justify an abatement, you got it because they were resetting your assessment to adjusted "market" as part of the process. Getting an abatement without first resetting WOULD be ridiculous and a scandal.

Since all the Dixon Leasing properties are 1-4 units (in fact, from what I have seen in the past, they are all single family units, but perhaps some are still zoned as multi-families of 1-4 units) I dont see how the rent reporting has any bearing (taxes are not predicated on that for 1-4 units) and the abatement thing is the standard 5-year abatement for such properties. So, what exactly is the issue? Can you actually provide concrete examples of graft/corruption/chicanery? Or, are the histrionics meant to make up for actual facts?

Robin's comment is def a concern. Nothing better than circulating information...: can rcjcinsider point out a listing of Dixon properties (address/date acquired) to watch out post november assessments? Also, are properties on the receiving end of 5 years abatements excluded from the reval inspections?

Really !

Trump and politicians just to name a few, have been exploiting tax loopholes, legislation and regulations regardless if democrats or republicans have been in office ... We shouldn't live in a fantasy that one political party is better at governance then the other.

The political and financial elite might 'talk the talk' but will never screw things up for themselves. Trump and any politician will ensure that any of their enterprises or interests will not be effected with their actions of change and if anything, will be benefitted by their political position ... no-one shoots themselves in the ass !

Why complain it's the American way - We have a President (not to mention most politicians) that knows every tax avoidance loophole in all his business and building interests.

Every developer, politician, corporation or individuals that have the means will employ a lawyer or even a team of lawyers to look for loopholes and exploit poorly written legislation ... It might be legal what they do, but maybe not so ethical and unfortunately, being unethical means nothing these days as there are no consequences.

If you want to finger point, then it's Fulop, Christie and the IRS for not 'patching' up those loopholes in our building regulations and tax laws.

Less then a week to go before I'm leaving on a Virgin flight from JFK to LAX then, Qantas plane out of here.

I noticed that Dixon managed to get one of their staff elected president of the Harsimus Cove Neighbourbood Association. Seems a conflict of interest.

So, a bunch of allegations without proof. Happy Easter, everyone!

By the way, $300k doesn't sound like a big threat to me. Nor does it sound like those properties have any sort of immunity from the upcoming reval.

Dixon Leasing, the traitors from Australia have a solid scam going. It's rather brilliant actually.

They have been renovating 1-4 Families in JC for a while. When us working folks renovate something, our taxes get updated. When the City hit Dixon Leasing with a $300K tax increase on over 50 Muliti-Families they have been updating, holier than thou Rebecca Sysmes with the help of her friend Candice Osborne threatened the City with a lawsuit just because she could. Here is the scam:
The deal that was made was for those multi-families to get a tax abatement on the improvement. The crime however was that this was deliberately done to protect the entire portfolio of Dixon Criminals against the Reval as the abated properties won't get touched.
They have also been feeding JC Tax Office (through Rebecca and other cronies) false rental data so that the City can't assess them properly. Taxes on Multi-Families are a % of the collected revenues. When you falsify the rent, the city can't get their fair share. In summary:
1) BS Rent numbers reported to the Assessors Office (if rent is really $3500, they claim 2000)
2) Abating properties for BS renovation work (they never pull all needed permits, just some for appearance sake)
3) Since buildings get abated, they are protected from the Reval
4) Getting Mother Theresa Rebecca Symes to be face of it all
5) Getting your cronies (Candice) to back you up.

Wake of Jersey City. You have been f-ed with for far too long.
