Property Tax Compliance & Returns
Property tax can create an unnecessary financial drain on a business, limiting profitability and exposing your company to excess risk. Mauldin & Jenkins tax team helps you save money by avoiding overpayment of property taxes and ensuring complete, timely compliance with all applicable tax authorities.
Are you paying too much in property tax for inventory and materials, business personal property, business-owned real property or commercial properties? Many businesses aren’t even aware that they are overpaying because of inaccurate valuations or duplicate assessments on a single asset. They may even be paying taxes each year on real property that should be exempt from taxation.
Is this happening to your business? Maybe. Would you know how to stop the problem if it was? Probably not, because property tax laws are complex, confusing and rapidly evolving in many jurisdictions. But confusing or not, compliance is essential as the penalties for late, incomplete or inaccurate property tax returns can pose a serious financial threat to your business.
Don’t let an excessive tax burden or penalties and interest limit your company’s profitability. You don’t have to neglect your business to take a deep dive into property tax law — just turn to the tax professionals at Mauldin & Jenkins.
