Myles B. Hoffert is a distinguished attorney with nearly fifty years of professional experience and the president of the Property Tax Services Group at Hoffert & Associates, P.C. Mr. Hoffert is based in Farmington Hills, Michigan, where he represents clients across Oakland County and statewide in a broad range of property tax and estate planning issues. As a founding member of the National Association of Property Tax Attorneys, Mr. Hoffert is sought after not just as a specialist in individual estate and tax planning, but also as a pioneer in legislation and policy affecting Michigan tax law.
With his heart set on becoming an attorney, Mr. Hoffert enrolled in the Detroit College of Law, where he graduated with his Juris Doctorate in 1971. He immediately began working as a Certified Public Accountant and then moved on to positions at several prestigious local firms. “I just knew I wanted to work in tax law,” he says. “I felt I could use that position to address the injustice of the municipality in setting the property taxes.”
In 2004, Mr. Hoffert joined Hoffert & Associates, P.C., where today he has contributed to the firm’s nationwide reputation as a leader in the development of property tax legislation and policy. Hoffert & Associates boasts an unmatched combination of professionalism and skill in client representation, as well as a history of regulatory and legislative input that has created a financially friendlier environment for property owners statewide. In addition to their specialty in property taxes, Hoffert & Associates serves clients in the areas of estate planning, business litigation, business transactions, and real property/land use.
Mr. Hoffert is a widely-recognized leader in his field and is a prolific writer and teacher of trends, changes, and concerns in tax law. Aside from the sea-changes in national tax law enacted by the current presidential administration, Mr. Hoffert notes that attention to detail is essential when working toward a favorable resolution for a client:
Assessors often make mistakes in property tax cases, especially when the home in question was built within the last year.
Just as interested in the nuances of tax law as he was when he began working as a CPA nearly five decades ago, Mr. Hoffert shows no signs of slowing down. Over the next several years, he would like to focus on increasing the number of commercial property cases he represents.
Outside of the office, Mr. Hoffert also stays involved in his professional community as a member of many prestigious organizations, including the State Bar of Michigan, the Oakland County Estate Planning Council, and the Institute for Professionals in Taxation, among others.
