2018 Real Estate Tax Assessment Appeal Agreement

Between Dixon Commercial Real Estate (“DCRE”) and Property Owner / Agent (“We” or “Us” or “Our”)

Assignment: This letter will confirm that I have authorized DCRE to evaluate and represent us in the appeal of the real estate tax assessment of our
property(s). We will promptly provide DCRE any requested information required to pursue the appeal (subject to availability). DCRE may resolve our petition
or withdraw from this agreement at any time if it determines that the property is fairly assessed, or that additional efforts are not warranted. We understand
that no guarantees have been made as to the likelihood of reducing the assessment on any particular property.

Payment: For a preliminary tax appeal analysis and set up fee, we agree to pay DCRE an initial non-refundable PROCESSING FEE OF $20 PER FOLIO. All
costs for administrative filing fees, market analyses, preparing presentations (e.g. photos, aerials, plats, and other exhibits), attending and administering the
hearings shall be absorbed by DCRE.

As compensation for this service, we agree to promptly pay DCRE a CONTINGENT FEE OF 35% OF THE TAX BENEFIT realized from a reduction in the tax
bill. This fee shall be charged for all tax benefits achieved for the current or prior tax years that are a direct result of actions taken by DCRE. This fee shall be
charged regardless of whether the taxpayer receives a “refund check” or “revised tax bill” from the County.
We understand that “refunds” are paid to the entity that paid the initial tax bill. DCRE can assist in determining where and when the check was sent, but we
are responsible for collecting the refund from a third party. For example, your Bank’s Escrow account will receive the check if they paid the taxes on your

Tax Benefit = (“Preliminary Values” – “Revised Values”) x Millage Rates
(Example: ($200,000 – $100,000) x .02 = $2,000)
This does not include discounts for early payments or interest owed for late payments on the difference
between the 75% paid and the new adjusted bill.

Earned fees are due and payable within 30 days of invoice if taxes for the subject property have not been paid. If taxes have been paid, earned fees are due
and payable 30 days after the issuance of a tax refund. If DCRE takes any action to collect a delinquent fee, we agree to pay all costs of collection, including
reasonable attorney fees. In the event fees are not paid when due as provided by this agreement, DCRE is authorized and shall have the right to record a
lien against the real property identified herein to secure such fees, following 30 days written notice to us.

If you have had your homestead exemption in place for more than 1 year, it is highly unlikely that we will be able to get a reduction for the property that yields a tax savings. If this is the case please call us to discuss before continuing.

Additionally, if you wish to raise your value for portability purpose we ask that you call us before continuing.

Please forward any Income & Expense information you may have for the past or current year, in order for us to properly analyze the property's assessment.

This could exclude I&E Reports, Tax Returns, Rent Rolls, or currently advertised Rental Rates.

You can upload it below, or send by fax or email as soon as you have it available to [email protected] (305-443-1450)

Please note that if your real estate taxes are paid by your lender from an escrow account. Any refunds achieved will be paid directly back to the lender's account. While we can assist in determining the amount and timing of the refund check, it is ultimately the property owners responsibility to confirm that the bank correctly credited your account.

Anything else we should know? Size calculations wrong, pending repairs, anything that could materially affect the value might be helpful to us so please let us know...
