Burr Wolff tax engine roaring into action with 2 new units.

Seeking to capitalize on substantial growth opportunities in its value appeals business, Burr Wolff, a nationwide, full-service provider of state and local tax reduction services, announced that two units have been formed under the direction of a pair of senior executives.

Co-founder Waiter Wolff will lead a new division focused on managing large-property appeals for existing customers and recruiting new customers that will benefit from the firm's aggressive approach to appeals.

Regional vice president Michael Slevens will lead a new small appeals group, which was formed as a result of feedback from Burr Wolff's business process outsourcing (BPO) customers requesting greater results and more visibility on their high volumes of small properties.

Burr Wolff's appeals team serves two types of customers: the business process outsourcing (BPO) customer for which the firm offers a comprehensive solution for filing returns, processing bills, producing financial reports and appealing property values; and local and national manufacturers and real estate owners for which Burr Wolff serves as a consultant to lower tax assessments through appeal negotiations.

The reorganization is designed both to take advantage of Burr Wolff's strong results in large property tax appeals and to enhance productivity and improve results on its customers' high-volume, low-value property tax appeals.

The large appeals team, headed by Walter Wolff, is comprised of 29 seasoned professionals that will be managed on a geographic basis by five regional vice presidents with more than 85 years of combined experience in the property tax arena.

"By focusing on the large properties, such as manufacturing plants, investment real estate and large leased assets, our senior tax negotiators are able to spend much more time researching and documenting appeal arguments that affect the majority of our customers' taxes," Wolff explains.

"In fact, 89 percent of our appeals customers' tax liability is represented by just 11 percent of their property tax accounts--so it makes sense for us to get extremely focused on that 11 percent."

"We are building the most innovative and aggressive appeals engine in the industry," added Wolff, the original architect and developer of the groundbreaking technology that was initially designed to support real estate and personal property appeals.
