Capital Tax Services was established in 2003 by property tax professionals to provide experienced tax representation to select clients in a wide variety of industries. Our staff has experience both inside corporate tax departments, and as outside consultants representing clients on real and tangible tax issues. We’ve succeeded in saving millions of dollars in overpaid taxes for some of the country’s largest companies. We’ve also successfully represented small and mid-sized firms with outstanding results.

Our philosophy is to pursue the lowest legal assessment possible, while maintaining a working relationship with the municipalities on behalf of ourselves and our clients. It’s vital that when we represent your interests, we’re thinking long term. Not just for one year, or one assessment, but for as long as you’re in business.
We will not pursue frivolous reductions in your property taxes merely to generate short term gains, while neglecting long range tax planning. That is why we have been working with many of our clients for many years. 

We’d like to earn your business by showing you how we’ve successfully saved money for other firms in your specific industry. Call us at 813-749-1802, or send us an email: info@CapitalTaxServices.com.
