These days there’s much talk about artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. Will robots take over our jobs, or won’t they? What can we expect when these technologies ramp up? AI and machine learning technology will have a profound impact on the workplace. In many ways, they are simply advancements in a long line of improvements helping people do their jobs better.

Take Control Of Your Unsecured Property Taxes With Technology

Posted by Eleshia Matheny on Aug 12, 2020 9:30:00 AM

If you’re wondering about the difference between secured vs. unsecured property taxes, I’d wager a guess you live in California. Why? Because it’s the only state in the union that uses this terminology in reference to this common ad valorem tax. Everywhere else, “secured property tax” is simply called real estate tax (real estate is attached to or secured by land); and “unsecured property tax” is called personal property tax (movable property not permanently affixed to a particular location).

Best Places To Gather Property Tax Information

Posted by James Frazier on Jul 23, 2020 3:00:00 PM

Businesses can easily get bogged down in property tax data. County addresses, deadlines, valuation methods, depreciation tables, tax ratios… there are too many data types to list. And while there are common pieces of information people look for, the options are limited when it comes to places to look. That’s because a good chunk of this data varies by jurisdiction. So instead of having central repositories for “property tax information,” a single county website may be your only option. And even finding that isn’t quite as easy as it seems (we’ll get to that later).

A Guide To Business Personal Property Tax In Colorado

Posted by Eleshia Matheny on Jun 22, 2020 8:39:57 AM

Colorado is generally considered a tax-friendly state for businesses. However, business personal property tax seems to be a bone of contention as of late, with a number of bills having been introduced in recent years attempting to ease the burden. Passed in 2017, Senate Bill 267 gave small businesses a break, reducing tax liability for companies with business personal property valued at less than $18,000. (Efforts to reduce it further at the state level, however, have failed.) And in late 2018, Jefferson County voted to eliminate its business personal property tax completely in an effort to retain existing businesses and attract new ones.

Property Tax Advisory: Strategies For Better Consulting

Posted by Carl Hoemke on May 19, 2020 8:00:00 AM

No matter what you were hired specifically to do, as a property tax consultant, your ultimate goal is always the same as that of your clients: to ensure they pay only their fair share of taxes. But some property tax consulting firms deliver more value than others, not because of the type of work they do (advisory, valuation, or compliance) but because they approach the consulting process more strategically, which often translates into better (and more) work.
