  • Business Personal Property Assessments and Review - We work with you to identify and quantify areas of property tax exposure and provide a comprehensive solution designed to maximize tax savings. Our review includes often overlooked areas of risk (e.g., fixed assets) and property tax credits and incentives, including state and local incentive programs.
  • Business Personal Property Compliance and Consulting - We assist with filing returns/renditions, assessment review and approval and managing the appeal process and mandatory audits. We manage tax bill processing by approving, tracking and writing checks to pay each jurisdiction’s property tax invoices. We also provide the necessary reports to ensure maintenance of property tax accruals and proper forecasting.
