Personal Property

When it comes to filing ad valorem tax returns, the problem with fixed asset accounting systems is that they are not designed for effective reporting of taxable assets.

The ability to eliminate or exempt items in existing books and records which can be reclassified is the key to reaching equitable assessments.

CTN specializes in this aspect as well. Our team of skilled personal property tax consultants can reclassify the unnecessary items in your existing books and much more.
