Personal Property Tax Compliance and Tax Minimization Programs
Filing annual personal property tax renditions is a requirement in 38 states. As each taxing jurisdiction has different filing requirements, renditions are often overstated and cost businesses thousands of dollars in overpaid property taxes. CPTM assists its clients by complying with the annual demand of taxing authorities for renditions and managing client fixed asset lists to minimize their tax burden, relieve potential tax liability increases and free up resources to focus on additional business priorities. Our tax consultants stay current with each state’s filing requirements and depreciation schedules.
