DELIVERING EXCELLENCE IN TAX MANAGEMENT
Don’t let property tax take a toll on your profitability. Crest’s client-driven, solutions-focused approach to the property tax cycle was developed with your bottom line as the priority.
From compliance to valuation and appeals to tax bill processing, our ala carte solutions are customized to fit your needs. Our multi-state, multi-industry experience ensures our clients get the service they deserve and pay no more than they should.
| Business Personal Property
A majority of states impose a tax on tangible assets with a penalty for failure to timely file the rendition. Crest’s personal property professionals analyze the client’s assets for taxability, life of asset, obsolescence, and exemptions. We ensure your renditions are properly and timely filed increasing profitability and protecting your bottom line.
| Centrally Assessed Property
The risk of double assessed property or over-assessed property is high on centrally assessed properties. That’s why our central assessment team works by client and not by area. We know taking a holistic approach is the only way to serve our clients. Not only on centrally assessed property but all property types.
The assessment of oil and gas properties varies by state. At Crest, we have experience in every state and every methodology. With extensive industry experience, our experts work with operator data to develop an aggressive approach for value reduction.and variances to be used in the reduction of taxable value.

Just as in property tax, our sales and use tax experts can provide valuable consulting in many areas. From tax implications on future transactions, tax planning and strategy, to predominant use studies Crest’s experts stand ready to help.
One of the most advantageous areas for revenue recovery is severance tax. Many operators fail to take advantage of deductions and exemptions and often make errors in the tax rates. Crest’s professionals can do a thorough review of your severance tax filings to identify and recover overpayments.
Severance tax regulations can be complicated. There are many intricate factors and operational details that must be considered. Only the very diligent and experienced consultants will find and capture all of the possible savings. We take a deep dive on a well-by-well basis to identify the opportunities and then aggressively pursue those opportunities for recovery.
We can also assist in optimizing your internal best practices so you can capture every incentive in the future.
Many clients struggle with tax due diligence. Property tax, sales and use tax, and unclaimed property are growing more complex each year with taxability varying widely by jurisdiction. There is always a risk of exposure which can negatively impact a transaction. Crest can provide due diligence support to identify potential exposures enabling your team to make informed decisions.
Tax issues can make or break a deal and the scope of the deal becomes even more complex when multiple jurisdictions are involved. It’s important to identify potential tax issues in a timely manner. As part of the due diligence process, we analyze tax liabilities, compliance, tax payments, pending appeals, pending tax lawsuits, future refunds or credits, and rollback tax issues. Our team will provide a report listing any material tax issues and/or future benefits or liabilities.
