SWBC Ad Valorem Tax Advisors Acquire Industrial/Complex Property Tax Consulting Company

SAN ANTONIO, TX (August 13, 2019) – SWBC Ad Valorem Tax Advisors announced today that it has acquired Industrial Property Tax Solutions (IPTS). IPTS, an industrial/complex property tax consulting firm headquartered in Boerne, Texas, focuses primarily in managing and reducing property taxes for capital intensive industries including marine transportation, manufacturing and distribution, energy, and media.

“We have been looking for opportunities to identify organizational synergies prior to considering any firm for potential acquisition, and IPTS fits that requirement perfectly,” said Gary Rivas, President of SWBC Ad Valorem Tax Advisors. “To help achieve our goal of continued growth, this acquisition plays an important role in expanding our ability to offer specialized and comprehensive property tax expertise to industrial/complex, heavy industry, and manufacturing clients.”

IPTS was founded by John Woolard. He has over 35 years of industrial property tax valuation and assessment appeals experience. He will stay on board, as well as the three people he currently employs. IPTS currently represents about $6 billion worth of property across the country.

“John is a recognized expert and leader in the industry,” said Rivas. “He and his team have built an impressive track record of success resulting in tremendous tax savings and long-term client relationships.”

“We are excited to be joining SWBC,” says Woolard. “We have known and worked with Gary (Rivas) for many years, and due to his integrity, expertise, and leadership in the property tax community, we did not consider selling our business to anyone other than SWBC. We look forward to working with SWBC Ad Valorem Tax Advisors CEO, Jesse Adams, and the entire SWBC Team.”

SWBC Ad Valorem Tax Advisors, recently named the top Property Tax Consultants in Bexar County for the ninth consecutive year, offers property tax services to commercial, residential, business personal property, and agricultural and wildlife property owners.
