Property Tax Consulting
Property taxes are an issue faced by homeowners and business owners alike, and it can be a challenge to understand your tax bill. In addition to helping you file a property tax appeal, we can also help ensure tax compliance so that you can avoid penalties and late charges related to your property taxes.
We may decide that obtaining property tax relief might be possible through an informal negotiation with Travis County, or we might decide to file a formal assessment appeal is the best route. As your property tax consultants, we’ll be with you the entire way from the initial consultation to the possible lawsuit representation.
Austin Business Personal Property Tax Consulting
If you own assets that are used to produce income, you could be liable for business personal property tax. Our business tax consultants will help classify your business’s assets and make sure that reporting for those assets is correct and won’t result in a financial penalty. We can also help with personal property renditions and returns, which you may need to do for each business location you own.
We can also discuss asset classification, inventory reporting, and leased asset reporting, all of which may impact how you file taxes. It’s essential that your reporting is accurate because the penalties can punish what is otherwise a well-run business. Mistakes can be costly; the government may issue a penalty even if you make an honest mistake.
Real Estate Tax / Ad Valorem Tax Consulting in Travis County
It’s a possibility that your real estate taxes may eclipse the amount of taxes you pay in all other areas, and it’s essential that your personal property tax return is accurate. We’re experts in reducing property tax, and we can act as a business or personal tax consultant in this area.
There are a variety of factors that go into a property tax assessment, and we can help you understand your assessment.
If we determine an appeal is necessary, we can hold an informal value negotiation with the Travis County assessor, which may negate the need for the full appeals process. You’ll benefit from our experience in negotiation as we may be able to conclude your appeal very swiftly.
