One of Orange County’s largest commercial printers was facing its annual 4-year audit when it hired us to provide our expert services. The client believed it had almost $4 million in obsolete machinery it was being unfairly taxed upon, but it didn’t have the expertise to argue this with the County Assessor. After our initial review, we found the client was correct in its calculations, and this fact helped decrease the business property tax liabilities. We were able to successfully argue the case to the Assessor and obtain a $50,000 refund for our client. These savings will be carried forward, and the client will reap not only the current year’s benefits but also savings on into the future.
