Some states provide business personal property tax exemptions for pollution control equipment. We can help you identify this equipment and seek refunds when applicable. But, more importantly; your company won’t continue to overpay each year.
Manufacturers often have opportunities to decrease personal property tax, through issues of obsolescence or re-classifying assets.
Most states allow a value adjustment when a company’s manufacturing operations are negatively impacted by external factors. This loss in value can be caused by a slow economy, regulations, or changes in technology.
Most states allow a value adjustment when a company’s manufacturing facility has a poor design flow, or when there is overcapacity or excess operating expenses.
Are your manufacturing assets properly classified? Manufacturing assets that contain a high percentage of software can often be moved to an asset category that has a shorter useful life saving your company personal property tax on a recurring basis.
