Fundraising to keep me from being evicted from my Medical Office. Who is Dr. Dave: The Issue at hand: I live in a a J-51 tax abatement space (No commercial taxes for 10 years). Out of nowhere, after 2 + years at my office, I got a bill for $18,000 in back taxes, $9,000 a year. Now it's $27,000 due. This came a as shock as we are in the LESPMHA, Inc.(the non profit housing org. / 41 buildings). I was told that when I moved in and AND my lease says that as well. I will challenge this in court, but I can get evicted in the meantime. With the help of a lawyer, I held off eviction one week ago and my new court date is July 29th. I need to pay all or most of these NYC taxes to stay here... and THEN I will research/investigate what happed to our J -51 tax abatement and why it went away. Or was never in place. Does not seem kosher to me. If I had that money, I would just pay it, but I don't. So the plan is pay all or most of the "back taxes" and then dig into what went wrong where. IF I had know there were RE taxes due, I would have kept up from the beginning. So I am asking for community help to pay NYC real estate taxes I was assured I was NOT responsible for. AND I was never informed I owed ANYTHING until it was 18,000 due last Sept. I ask people to put in $30 or $40 each. I believe we can get a very small donation from 1000 people. If you are wealthy, you can donate any amount you are OK with. Regular working people and others... I only ask for a small amount so no one is put out too much by all this. I thank everyone and it has always been my pleasure to provide Medical Care to anyone I can help on the LES. Thank you. Dr Dave Ores.
