Negotiating property tax assessments can be better described as an
"art" instead of a science. There is no magic to what we do, effort is
the driving force. Quite often, effort is the only difference between
the person who strives for success and the person who attains it. The
secret to success in the property tax business lies in knowing more
about the property than the taxing authorities do. At Mattox, Terrell
& Associates, Inc., we are familiar with every aspect of the tax
problems you face and offer time tested, proven methods of solution.
We excel at appealing Harris County property taxes in Texas and we have affiliates
throughout the United States.
Our integrity is unsurpassed among government tax authorities as they know we won’t waste their time. Because property tax officials are increasingly scrutinized by outside agencies, they expect well-documented, hard evidence to substantiate any proposed value changes. With full documentation of our position in hand, we are prepared to negotiate and follow the administrative appeal process as far as necessary to obtain the desired outcome.
Property taxes are the largest single expense item, exclusive of debt service, on a commercial property’s profit and loss statement. This fact is compounded by complicated bureaucratic procedures and heavy case loads which increase the likelihood of an inaccurate assessment. It makes good business sense to constantly monitor and control property taxes on an annual and ongoing basis. Mattox, Terrell & Associates, Inc. manages real and personal property taxes with the strongest commitment to service.
