Property Tax Compliance

Property Tax Compliance

Property taxes represent one of the largest areas of tax exposure and risk for companies. With the complexities of property tax, the resources needed for tax compliance with the multitude of regulations set forth by the taxing jurisdictions can and will impact your bottom line. To reduce your property tax liability, it’s important to understand the issues and any changes in tax law as a result of tax reform that can impact your tax burden, which include:

  • Information Quality: The accuracy, quality, and consistency of property tax data impact everything from compliance to financial reporting and risk management.
  • Volume and Asset Complexity: Whether you file property tax returns in hundreds of jurisdictions or returns with more complex assets, your tax department may be overwhelmed.
  • Local Knowledge and Tax Reduction: Personal property tax is a unique area of taxation.

Even the best-equipped tax departments do not always have personnel with specialized knowledge and experience in every jurisdiction. Ryan can ease these challenges and increase efficiencies through comprehensive property tax compliance and consulting services—a cost-saving investment to ensure your risks for late fees and penalties are mitigated, and those dollars stay on your company’s bottom line.
