Why O’Connor for Commercial Property Tax Reduction?
It is your right to challenge the system! You have a right to lower your Property Taxes!
O’Connor has made a Major Breakthrough for Hotel and Commercial property owners, reducing their property taxes significantly. We are the largest property tax consulting firm in the nation with 700+ professionals, representing 200,000+ properties, including thousands of hotels.
What O’Connor Offers
there is NEVER a fee unless we reduce your property taxes! In the event we recommend judicial, or State Board appeals on your behalf, we pay for all filing fees, legal fees, appraisal fees, expert witness fees, etc. Our contingency fees are very competitive, among the lowest in the industry. You pay NOTHING unless we save you MONEY!
O’Connor & Associates is not only one of the largest property tax consulting firms, but is also one of the largest commercial appraisal firms. The combination of hundreds of analysts and a team of appraisers produce the most extensive research and equip our consultants with the most comprehensive evidence for tax appeal hearings. Few consultants can compete with O’Connor’s superior advantage.
We Understand the Law
O’Connor is constantly keeping track of the Law so you don’t have to! For example, did you know, Most State laws excluded intangible assets such as the value of your hotel flag franchise from ad valorem taxation. In addition, hotel FF&E is NOT taxable when value is based on the income approach.
While many consultants tend to settle easily, due in part to lack of knowledge in hotel & commercial valuation, O’Connor consultants aggressively pursue lower values through multiple rounds of appeals if supported by solid evidence.
Clients can communicate directly with their consultant or account executive for all their needs without going through an operator.
To support a judicial appeal, as well as some administrative appeals, O’Connor will order an independent commercial appraisal report customized for your property.
