Commercial and Industrial Property Tax Consulting

“Our commitment is to provide, through a combination of knowledge and performance, the best property tax consulting and appeal services available.”

 – John Skidmore, 2012


Quality Over Quantity

Have you worked with property tax consultants in the past?  Have you found the marketing department has little relation to the manager on your account?  Have you found that the manager understands property tax, but the person actually working on your property has very limited experience? 

JP Skidmore & Company was founded with the idea that there is a better way to provide commercial and industrial property tax consulting.  Rather than relying on inexperienced consultants to represent our client’s  properties, we chose to leverage technology.  Our proprietary models and databases allow for faster and more accurate valuation of your property.  In addition, technology allows us to better manage critical deadlines that could trigger penalties. 


Of course, leveraging technology does not solve all problems, but it does provide more time to develop relationships with our clients.  JP Skidmore& Company takes pride in spending the time it takes to understand our client’s needs and the the properties they own.


Your Consultant

Every property has a story, just as every person does.  Telling that story helps the Assessor understand why a property might be overvalued.  We believe that your consultant should:

  • Be aware of national economic factors that impact local property values.
  • Have a thorough understanding of the local/regional market.
  • Fully understand valuation of real property and business personal property.
  • Be able to articulate effective arguments to the Assessor and in front of valuation boards.
  • Be able to communicate clearly and effectively with the client. 


 Protests & Appeals

We deploy professional representation, deep market knowledge and economic expertise to achieve market leading results.  Let us help you with your commercial and industrial real estate as well as business personal property appeals.  

Business Personal Property

Use our experience to assist with your complex reporting responsibilities.  We have saved thousands of tax dollars by avoiding penalties and capturing exemptions appropriate to your business. 


Exemptions offer some of the most substantial reductions to property tax available.  Yet they can be overlooked simply because owners are unaware of their existence.  Let us  identify opportunities you might be missing.  


Assessment Equity

Is your property assessed equitably?  How would you know?  We have developed models that clearly identify when a property is inequitably assessed and we aggressively pursue fair values for all our clients.   



Our CPA recommended JP Skidmore & Company to review the property taxes for Protech Global Solutions.  John reduced our taxable inventory through the Texas Freeport Exemption and reduced our tax burden by over $20,000.  We highly recommend JP Skidmore & Company’s experienced professional representation when dealing with property tax for your business.
