• Property Tax

Proactive. Comprehensive. Compliant.

Nearly all jurisdictions below the state level generate revenue through the imposition of property taxes. Levied most frequently by counties and cities, these taxes are one of the most substantial sources of local government revenue, and can be one of the largest regular operating expenses for businesses in the U.S. Unlike other taxes, property tax assessments are an ad valorem tax, meaning they are based on the estimated value of the property, and thus, are subject to varying opinions. Companies with properties in multiple jurisdictions must manage differing rules, regulations, and deadlines while determining whether their assessments are equitable.
