HMS Property Tax Studies HMS Companies Inc. conducts Property Tax Studies with the specific intent to argue the assessment and lower liability through negotiations on behalf of the client. Taxes represent one of the highest operating costs that linger in a falling value and rent supported market. Every effort is needed to reduce this cost. HMS professionals compile data in preparation for presentation to assessing officials, schedule and attend assessment hearings and fight to lower the assessments key in calculating taxes. Most work is portfolio based unless the project is sizable enough to warrant the action and cost to prepare. Action to negotiate smaller payoffs of back taxes are undertaken with treasures as needed. Lenders and owners of large portfolios of property represent those clients in greatest need.
