DMA’s Property Tax Assessment Review is a diagnostic review of your real and personal property taxes that have been assessed by taxing authorities. During the review, our property tax professionals focus on identifying opportunities for reducing both real and personal property tax assessments, which may result in opportunities for property tax overpayment recovery. We partner with you to review your entire portfolio of properties or individual properties of concern to you.
We visit and inspect every property and analyze all facets of the real and personal property tax assessments. We also focus on industry-specific issues having an impact on value, obsolescence, fixed assets, cost components, and exemptions. This includes inventory analysis, leased equipment analysis, and pollution control analysis. When analyzing valuation, we use comparable sales, pricing guides, replacement costs, and income stream. Our tax professionals provide you with a report that specifies our findings and provides recommendations for reducing assessed values. We also provide specific subject matter education to you and your staff regarding issues that affect assessments.
With your approval, DMA works with local assessing authorities to implement our findings in a positive, proactive manner. If necessary, we work on your behalf to resolve any issues through hearings, tax boards, and tax court. You can be assured that DMA’s local expertise and relationships will foster a speedy resolution to erroneous assessments, and for properties DMA deems fairly assessed, you can be confident knowing the taxes are appropriate.
DMA’s state-specific tax professionals work with you as an extension of your tax department.
