Article From Director – Tom Tapko


Hello. My name is Tom Tapko. I am currently a team lead and a part of the hospital team for our personal property department. I began with PVS in 2007 as a property tax consultant and quickly learned that I enjoyed the large scale and complexity of filing personal property tax returns for hospitals.

In 2013, I was promoted to team lead for the hospital team. As team lead, I am tasked with assisting  Technical Director Chip Saam with the day-to-day management of the team. This also includes on-going training with the property tax consultants, attending appeal hearings, site visits and audits.

During these summer months, we spend a lot of our time collecting values from the jurisdictions and reconciling any value discrepancies against the returns that were filed to identify issues that may require additional action. Our goal at PVS has always been to ensure that our clients only pay their fair share in taxes.  

I appreciate working for a company that values both its clients and employees. For as long as I have been at PVS, we have always been looking to the future for ways to improve efficiency and results.

I look forward to hearing from any clients, current and prospective, with questions that you may have.
