Discovery Services

We are equipped to organize, implement and deliver a precise search of unreported taxpayers for your County. Each County that has utilized our discovery services, has enjoyed the fruits of our labor leading to the identification of numerous taxpayers many with values over $1,000,000 worth of equipment that have never even filed a property tax listing. Due to an agreement we have with a marketing intelligence firm, known as Equipment Data Association or EDA, we have access to an extensive search engine that enables us to search for all equipment in the United States that has been leased, purchased, rented, or refinanced. Moreover, we can run queries that compare all the businesses by County who have a UCC lien on equipment (EDA data) against the County’s comprehensive business personal property tax records.

Other resources we utilize for our discovery services include:

  • The Department of Transportation
  • Reports on taxpayers who receive farm subsidies
  • Database information from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources
  • Databases of regulated equipment such as x-ray machines and tanning beds.

Over the past 13 years, we have successfully utilized these resources to discover hundreds of unreported businesses enabling our customers to recognize a significant increase in taxable value.
