Are you sure that your company is paying the right amount in property taxes?
The more assets a company has across different geographies, the more complex and challenging it is to manage relevant property tax information. PowerPlan’s Property Tax Suite simplifies this process for asset-intensive companies by enabling property tax basis optimization while minimizing risk. PowerPlan automates the full property tax cycle, from preparing returns to tracking assessments to paying bills and calculating accruals. With flexibility to handle both locally and centrally assessed property, PowerPlan drives both increased tax savings and productivity gains within the tax department.
