Where can your annual compliance process save your company money?
After completion of a reputable tax provider’s property tax reduction analysis, JM Tax Advocates identified multiple strategies for our company to lower its property tax costs and to improve upon our historical tax incentive positions. We are now in a position to reallocate significant funds that were otherwise dedicated to paying our annual taxes and are now able to use them in other important strategic ways to help facilitate business growth and capital expansion. We appreciate JMTA’s efforts to improve our company’s bottom line profitability!
I appreciated the thoroughness of work, the integrity and the valuation results obtained. I would strongly recommend JMTA’s team for your company needs.
