    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).

    Posted by Alfonso Porras on Mar 3, 2020 12:19:09 PM

    Without a doubt, all tax departments—income, sales and use, and property tax—make a unique contribution to a company’s bottom line. But as a former director of property tax at a large corporation, I can also attest to the fact that all corporate tax functions are interrelated.

    Your Tax Assessment vs. Property Tax: What's the difference?

    Posted by Eleshia Matheny on Sep 20, 2019 11:55:56 AM

    The concepts of an assessment and property tax have proven to be a point of confusion for some business owners—are they one and the same, or two different things? In fact, assessment is an integral function of the tax cycle, but taxation and assessment are two distinct things. The rationale behind the separation: It protects property owners from possible unfair treatment.
