Property taxes are a major component of hotel operating expenses, directly affecting the bottom-line success of a business. For hotels, controlling their property tax levels by securing the maximum reductions and economic incentives is a must to ensure you keep your hotel running full steam ahead!
But, within the ever-changing tax world and the intricacies of the system, it pays to have a property tax partner who can guide the way and advise on the most effective cost-saving actions.
Many hotel operators rely on JM Tax Advocates to assist with property tax related opportunities for their hotels including property tax review and property tax compliance services.
Our evaluation process concentrates primarily on segregating the going concern value of the hotel’s entire business into real estate, personal property, and intangible value components. Frequently, during hotel assessments, the personal property and intangible segregation steps for the hotel valuation get lost in the shuffle and the owner can suffer through inflated annual property tax bills overall. Our highly qualified hospitality industry team leverages its decades of experience to ensure that your hotel does not pay a penny more or a penny less that the true, accurate, and equitable amounts!
Penalties and fines accrued from property tax non-compliance can be a backbreaker to businesses, consuming both time and money.
