WHY THE OVERPAYMENTS?
The basic methods counties use to value personal property create over-valuations and higher taxes! All companies are required to use the same personal property tax declaration form. This one-size-fits-all form, with its setlist of depreciation schedules, attempts to determine the actual fair market value of your assets based on the asset’s acquisition cost.

We welcome the opportunity to reduce your personal property taxes. Remember, if we don’t find any savings, we do not earn a fee.
When we perform our analysis of your personal property we will…
- Begin by gathering a copy of your most recent filing, your fixed asset listing, and a copy of your personal property tax bill.
- Tour the facility and perform a gone study to verify the fixed asset listing
- Review any source documentation to determine the asset’s true purchase price.
- Properly classify assets in various equipment categories to maximize depreciation.
- Work with the local assessors to explain the changes made and implement our strategies.
- Lastly, we will educate you and your staff on the methodology used and provide a clear framework for you to continue saving on future filings.
Many businesses treat the preparation of their annual personal property declarations as routine: you simply cross out gone equipment, write in new equipment, and you’re done – right? These declarations determine your tax bill, so reporting them correctly can mean the difference in thousands of dollars saved!
The Brennan Group will review the previous year’s declaration, correctly state each additional asset, and make certain your filing is done with the utmost accuracy. We will do everything we can to ensure you don’t pay a penny more than what is owed.
