PVS Philosophy

The significance is in knowing how a machine works, what makes it work and knowing from the asset description whether an asset is a computer, general medical equipment, software or furniture and fixtures. Your local certified public accountant or general tax-consulting firm cannot make these distinctions.

Audit & Appeal

Business personal property taxes are subject to an audit process by the taxing jurisdiction. Taxpayers are at liberty to protest the business personal property assessment through an appeal process. PVS represents our clients in and through this intricate and time-consuming process.
