Capital Tax Services was established in 2003 by property tax professionals to provide experienced tax representation to select clients in a wide variety of industries. Our staff has significant experience inside corporate tax departments and as outside consultants representing clients on real and tangible tax issues.
We've succeeded in saving millions of dollars in overpaid taxes for some of the country's largest companies. We've also successfully represented small and mid-sized firms with outstanding results.
Our philosophy is to pursue the lowest legal assessment possible while maintaining a working relationship with the municipalities on behalf of our clients. It's vital that when we represent your interests, we're thinking long-term. Not just for one year, or one assessment, but for as long as you're in business. We are the proven experts in tangible personal property tax assessments.
