Property Tax Services

Kroll engages with companies nationwide to provide independent, innovative and results-driven property tax services.

Property taxes are one of the largest recurring operating expenses associated with tangible asset ownership. Owners are often unaware of what items or costs are taxable, what items are being assessed or how their property is being valued. Answering these and other related questions often produce recurring property tax savings for owners and lessees.

We assist clients in identifying tax saving opportunities by reviewing their tangible property portfolio and associated property tax assessments and liabilities. Through our diligence, we generate millions of dollars in property tax savings for clients worldwide.
