Property Tax Appeals
Our Appeals Practice
Peak 5 Advisors’ real property tax appeal practice looks out for our clients’ best interests by dealing with county and municipality ad valorem tax assessors across North America. We are experienced in all facets of real estate valuation appeals, having served the entire spectrum of property types and industries. From informal discussions to formal appeals, we provide the most effective solutions to achieve favorable results for our clients.
Our Appeals Process
We will review the current and proposed assessment of your property and make a recommendation based on our analysis.
If an appeal is ultimately warranted, we will complete a comprehensive review of the property and its financial history, diligently research the local market and recent transactions using the most trusted real estate data providers and formalize a case presentation based around the three approaches to value; income, sales and cost.
Once our case materials are finalized, we aggressively negotiate the value to the proper authority with the utmost professionalism. We escalate the appeal through each additional administrative board until a satisfactory result is obtained. We achieve reductions in over 95% of the properties we appeal.
Personal Property Valuation Reviews
We will review the the assessed value and determine the accuracy and methodology used to value each personal property item and identify any value variances that may be opportunities for tax refunds or appeal opportunities.
Personal Property Tax Appeals
Once a tax refund or appeal opportunity has been identified, we will complete a comprehensive personal property valuation analysis as of the lien date and negotiate the personal property values with the assessor.
