Ad Valorem Tax Advisors

If you own commercial real estate in Texas, you pay taxes based on the value assessed by your appraisal district. The appraisal district, however, may not be aware of every factor that impacts the value and you may find yourself paying higher property taxes than you should. SWBC’s team of Ad Valorem Tax Advisors can help you reduce your commercial property tax values, as well as secure appropriate property tax exemptions, property tax abatements, and create tax increment financing structures.
