From the first engagement to the last, we are there to walk with you and your team through the process. Our business property tax experts intricately know all the stages of the process and will only engage with you when we need important information.
1. Thorough review the property assessment
Because of the various complexities of assessing business property taxes, tax assessors try to standardize their assessments to streamline the process for their internal needs and efficiencies. This means that they will likely miss the various unique details of your business and property when assessing the tax. We use our state of the art tools and expert analysis to compare your property with similar ones in your market and then adjust the value based on the unique characteristics of your specific property.
2. Check any exemptions
Sounds simple, but for those that don’t practice this on a grand scale, it can be overwhelming to keep up with all the available exemptions. For example, specific groups of people might be entitled to tax exemptions that others aren’t. Our team is immersed in the industry across the country and are ready to check all possible exemptions.
3. Prepare the property tax appeal
Depending on your state and taxing jurisdiction, we follow the standard process to appeal your property taxes. In many cases, we start with preparing your case for the tax assessor in your area where it is possible to settle the matter informally. If the resolution from the assessor’s office is unsatisfactory, we will prepare and present your case to an independent local appeals board for review. Then, we can prepare to escalate the case and formally appeal your property tax assessment to a state board.
Assessments Technologies can simplify the process for you and help you ensure that it’s carried out properly. By hiring a professional, you can ensure that all the information gathered and documentation submitted will be accurate. Our property tax experts have the negotiation skills needed to help you secure a favorable settlement and win your property tax appeal.
