Providing consultation services related to property tax assessments on business aircraft. We specialize in assisting aircraft owners obtain fair and reasonable assessments. Property taxes should be reviewed annually to determine if the valuation is reasonable. The Assessor often does not have the time or expertise to fully analyze the valuation of your aircraft.
I formerly worked at the LA County Assessor's office for 15 years specializing in valuing general aviation aircraft. Since retirement I have been representing aircraft owners for over 11 years and have been extremely successful. While not every aircraft is over assessed, it is advisable to have an expert in aircraft property taxation on your side as the rules and procedures are not necessarily intuitive.
For the last 11 years I have been working with a highly respected attorney specializing in property taxation, Robert Slavin in Westlake Village, CA. His tax consulting firm Assessment Counseling Services, (visit his website atacstax.com), has represented high value taxpayers since 1987. Aircraft valuation for property tax purposes is a world unto its own with valuation, procedural, and legal issues. The combination of my aircraft and assessment experience, and Mr. Slavin’s specialized legal knowledge make us the preeminent firm representing high-end aircraft before the Assessors Office.
