Commercial Property Taxes
We save our clients collectively millions every year!
As the largest property tax consulting firm in Texas, based on the annual number of appeals, our team saves our clients millions of dollars every year in property taxes. Our licensed tax agents and administrative support team help commercial property owners by filing personal property renditions, reviewing tax statements, protesting over-assessed property values and attending informal tax hearings and appraisal review board meetings. O’Connor has become a proven leader in aggressive property tax reduction, pursuing every legal avenue to protest and lower your taxes:
- Informal hearings
- Appraisal review board (ARB) hearings
- Judicial appeals
Our staff achieves better results than is typical for most firms. We attempt to reduce your property taxes for each property every year, even if the value did not change!
O’Connor covers legal fees for judicial appeals
For owners who aren’t satisfied with the appraisal review board’s value opinion, we continue the protest by coordinating a lawsuit against the appraisal district – on a contingency fee basis. We will engage expert witnesses and legal counsel at no cost – unless the value is reduced. We have led more judicial appeals – and achieved more satisfactory rulings and settlements – than any other firm in Texas.
Reduce taxes – even if property is assessed below market value
Texas law allows owners to appeal assessments based on equality with similar properties. We are the statewide leader in presenting sophisticated analysis supporting favorably assessed comparable, in addition to market value arguments. With a process for compiling and analyzing data for uniform and equal analysis, value reductions were achieved 69 percent of the time for Harris County commercial properties that we represented in 2009!
Higher percent reductions
Our tax agents achieve a higher percentage reduction than other consultants. They are the statewide leader in presenting appraisal review boards with sophisticated analyses supporting aggressive values.
No financial risk
With O’Connor, no fees are due unless the property taxes are reduced. Fees are applicable for the protested year only. In fact, our team will continue to protest each year, billing only when savings are achieved.
