Murphy Property Tax Consulting has spent years developing a process
that usually produces results for its clients. Our thorough grounding
in this process allows us to offer our services to you on a purely
contingent basis. Heres a high-level overview of how it works:
- Interview: This is the first
phase of discovery. We will ask you about your specific tax needs
and objectives, while also learning about your business and real
- Collect: Continuing our
discovery, we begin to gather all pertinent property information,
including operating data, and work with you to minimize your time
and documentation requirements.
- Inspect: Murphy will perform
a detailed on-site physical inspection of your property. This
is a critical precursor to the valuation we will create and helps
us verify or disputethe assessors records. It
can also reveal crucial obsolescence issues that can be functional
or economicor involve other property characteristics that
- Valuation: After a review
of the assessors valuation methodology, we will perform
an internal appraisal analysis to determine if the assessors
value is "fair market value.
- Recommend: At this point,
our discovery has concluded, allowing us to present our analysis
and recommendations to you. We will establish a tax position for
the property and give you guidance relative to your appeal. In
some cases, an appeal is not warranted. In many, it is. Either
way, you pay us nothing at this point.
- Present: If an appeal is
warranted, we will informally present our appeals to our colleagues
in the assessors office. If appropriate, we will then offer
a formal appeal to the respective county board.
- Advise: As always, we will
stay in close contact with you and communicate the results of
our efforts. We will also apprise you as to the results we have
achieved or advise you as to the prospects of pursuing further
relief via the state administrative board or courts.
- Save: At the conclusion
of this complicated, time-intensive process, the hopeful result
is significant savings for you! If we are successful in our effortsonly
thenwe are paid out of those savings.
