Complex Industrial Services

With the experts at Paradigm Tax Group, we have a dedicated team with decades of experience in evaluating your complex industrial tax needs and providing tax savings.

Properties deemed Complex Industrial typically include valuation and property tax considerations for both Business Personal Property and Real Property. Due to the nature of these properties, it is not uncommon for these properties to be taxed more than once.

Examples of Complex Industrial Properties that are accessed using the Unitary Valuation Methodology, include:

  • Railroads
  • Wireline & Wireless Telecommunications
  • Passenger Airlines and Air Cargo Operators
  • Cable Television
  • Fiber Optic Cable

Types of Complex Industrial Properties

These properties are highly custom and have been built for a specific purpose. This property type is most often valued under the Cost Approach to Value model. However, at Paradigm Tax Group we have seen an increasing trend of assessors attempting to estimate the value of the output and apply a capitalization rate to the income stream (Income Approach to Value). This practice often fails to recognize the valuable contributions of Intangible Property such as assembled work force, working capital, trade secrets, contracts, or a host of other non-taxable property. The value of Special Purpose Property is highly dependent on its economic life and the impact of disruptive technologies. For this reason, the proper estimation of the impact of Functional and Economic Obsolescence can greatly impact the overall taxable value of the property.

Special purpose properties may also have proprietary self-developed technologies that are used to design and operate the equipment. Processes may have been developed in order to meet the needs of one long-term client who has contracted for the specialty product. Other types of Intangible Property include goodwill, trained and assembled workforce, permits, licenses, and computer software. Taxability of these kinds of assets varies by state.
