Property Audit Process
- List of items that need to be submitted to the auditor by a specific date.
- Information is gathered and submitted to the auditor.
- The auditor reviews the information submitted. Typically, there are discussions at this point and possibly some questions requiring clarification or requesting additional information.
- The auditor will issue their findings – which may include an increase or decrease to the assessment or may result in no change. If the opportunity is available and warranted, the findings may be appealed.
- If the audit results in findings, a supplemental tax bill or refund will be issued.

Acadia Healthcare CompanyTax Director
Former senior corporate tax officer of a growth company operating hospitals and healthcare facilities in varying geographical regions. While actively leading the company’s tax function, PVS was our primary property tax consulting firm. It was critical to our success to partner with the local communities we operated within and that included Property Tax Assessors. PVS did outstanding work in a deliberate and ethical manner assisting our hospital management teams in paying a “fair” property tax.
We have been a client with PVS since 2017. I would say that since that time PVS has become a vital part of our team. We think of their team as an extension of our own workforce, and they act like it. They are always quick to reply, happy to work with us for changes we need, and provide us with timely, accurate information at what I would call a very reasonable price. Since working with PVS, we have significantly reduced our time spent and number or errors in collecting, accruing, and paying our property tax bills and managing those bills that go to our clients. In addition, we have had a very significant reduction in late fees assessed against us and saved thousands on property tax appeals that we might otherwise not have even known how to navigate. If you are looking for real estate tax services I would greatly recommend PVS to take care of you.

“Ardent Health Services has utilized Property Valuation Services (PVS) for 15 years because the work and Services are best in class. I’m not aware of any other property tax firm that has the level of industry knowledge. The tax-savings generated annually by PVS would be enough on its own for our continued relationship, but PVS has become our go-to firm for property tax research, consulting, and due diligence as well.”
