PVS Pre-Rendition Services

Similar to the Appeals process, Pre-rendition Personal Property services include multiple steps prior to submitting the return to the taxing authority.

  • Taxing authorities are more flexible; not having posted an assessment or tax dollar figure to your asset base
  • More time to work with the assessors offices
  • Work is done, without creating a sense of priority, prior to any county imposed deadlines
  • Understand, identify, document and demonstrate assets as they relate to taxable or non-taxable statutes
  • If requested and warranted, travel to facility for on-site evaluation

PVS Procedure

  • Gather Pertinent Information from Client
  • Research Taxing Jurisdiction's Assessment Procedures
  • Open Dialogue with Local Tax Assessor
  • Evaluate Client's Existing Reporting Methods
  • Evaluate Total Asset Listing
    • Life Assets
    • Remove Disposed Assets
    • Evaluate Current Year Additions
    • Identify Non-Taxable assets
    • Value Taxable Assets
    • When applicable, Communicate with Individual Department(s)/Locations to determine status of Existing Capitalized Assets

  • Discuss PVS' Valuation Techniques with Taxing Authority
  • File Return
  • Review Proposed Assessment for Accuracy
  • Generate Tax Bill Approval

PVS Differentiators

  • PVS specializes in Complex Properties; other firms are generalized property tax firms and specialize in nothing

  • Majority of work is done on a pre-rendition basis
  • PVS wants to fix any problem that exists
  • The backgrounds and experience of the people that make up the PVS organization
  • PVS is completely electronic and uses the technology of today
  • Extensive Database of Intangible Assets built into the purchase price of High-Tech Equipment

PVS Starting Point

  • PVS will take the prior year's reporting methods, as submitted and/or accepted by the taxing jurisdiction, trend the previously reported assets forward to the current year
  • PVS will not take credit for depreciation on trending previously reported assets
  • PVS will add/or subtract any additions and/or deletions identified by client
  • PVS will not take credit for deleting assets previously identified by client
  • PVS will execute their techniques for reduction, submit product to taxing authority and confirm that methodology was accepted
  • Savings equals the difference between the starting point (see first four bullet points) and the final assessed value multiplied by the most recent published tax rate for that taxing jurisdiction

PVS Traditional Service Fees
