CHLA Members Receive a Complimentary Assessment

CHLA has partnered with property tax experts, Kroll, to provide appeal services to members that seek to have their property tax assessments analyzed. Are you aware that the appeal deadline is November 30 for most counties in California? CHLA members are encouraged to contact Kroll to receive a complimentary property tax assessment review. Kroll provides services on a success basis only, meaning that payment is only made if Kroll identifies and achieves assessment reductions and after you’ve received either a refund or reduced tax liability. Do not miss your window to appeal your hotel’s property taxes.

This is a federal program that allows eligible businesses to get back FICA taxes paid on tip earnings that surpass the federal minimum wage.
