Assessment Analysis Appeals at Informal, Local & State Levels.
The county uses various means of valuing your property. Are they using the most accurate approach, or the one that benefits them the most?
There is an inherent problem in the reporting of personal property tax due to the fact that assets are capitalized for Federal tax purposes. In addition, your fixed asset inventory may not be up to date. As a result, companies very rarely are reporting the correct amounts with the correct methodology to ensure they’re only paying their fair share. What are you reporting?
At The Brennan Group we can assist you with these projects:
~ Compliance Review & Analysis
~ Inventory Analysis
~ Fair Market Value Appeals
In most companies, fixed asset accounting is a low priority. You can’t afford the drop in productivity to have your staff spend weeks counting equipment and assets.

We can become an extension of your department, completing a Fixed Asset Listing Reconciliation and Validation without tying up your time. Our Asset Barcode System gives you floor to book and book to floor reconciliation, and makes you SOX Compliant.

The Brennan Group can help you contain these expenses by ensuring that you are paying the least per unit and demonstrate ways to reduce the number of units consumed. There are so many telecommunication choices, it would take a full-time employee just to research the best rates and services for your company. Is the plan you have right for you and is it at the right price? Our consultants will identify the best solutions at the best possible prices.
Worker’s Compensation Premium Analysis Left unchecked, worker’s comp premiums can gradually increase to a point where they become totally inaccurate for your needs. An audit ensures your company is paying the most accurate and cost effective premium possible. Statutes allow us to go back up to seven years to recover excessive premiums.
“The Brennan Group has been successfully handling real estate tax appeals for the St. Louis office of First Industrial Realty Trust, Inc for years. My experience with The Brennan Group started when Mike Brennan approached me asking if it was okay to review properties that other companies had passed upon, just to see if there was any way to reduce the real estate taxes. I gave The Brennan Group the data on four or five properties where I had been told the assessment was fair and reasonable; two months later, we received reductions on 2/3s of those properties. Now when we bring a new property on line, The Brennan Group is tasked to review the taxes and file our appeals.”
