ST. CHARLES, Ill. – May 10 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — David LeVan, President of Advantax(R), Group, LLC (www.Advantax.com), announced today a new national initiative to help companies better integrate outsourced property tax compliance services and internal software solutions.

Under the leadership of William Zelibor, Vice President of Compliance Services, Advantax(R) will align these growing services to provide US corporations a seamless transition between in house and outsourced property tax services.

“Corporate tax departments continue to evolve and improve. Transitions between internal and external processing is a huge headache for tax and IT departments,” said LeVan. “This is a fresh approach to deal with an emerging problem. It gives our clients a seamless way to manage workloads consistently, with the flexibility to tap into needed support quickly and efficiently. We expect this will reduce many corporate tax headaches.”

According to Zelibor, merging these products and services will reduce both time and costs involved with compliance by “significantly simplifying managing compliance, understanding statutes, obtaining depreciation tables and evaluating valuation methodologies for an estimated 80,000 taxing jurisdictions across the country.”

“We know companies change and grow. Corporate directives, economics and staffing issues affect the decision to outsource the property tax function or manage it internally. It gets complicated, but this new initiative will help cover all the bases involved in property tax compliance,” Zelibor says.

The Advantax National Compliance Center(TM), already files over 20,000 outsourced personal property tax returns on behalf of Advantax clients. In addition, companies who manage filing in house will be able to tap into the software functionality of PTR by Advantax(TM) just one component of the comprehensive family of Advantax property tax solutions.

PTR by Advantax(TM), is also licensed directly to Fortune 1000 companies across the US to simplify compliance with jurisdictional requirements. PTR(TM), provides critical due dates and organizes data required for presentation to taxing jurisdictions. The management component also allows for real and personal property assessment management, payment processing, analysis and budgeting.

“Our team at the Advantax National Compliance Center(TM), serves clients across all industries. From manufacturing, telecommunication and broadcasting, to financial services and retail industries, we offer reliable, comprehensive property tax compliance services,” said Zelibor.

According to LeVan, “We continue to expand our services to offer a comprehensive suite of property tax services. Our clients appreciate that we can come along side them -wherever they are in the property tax continuum, and provide effective, seamless solutions for all their compliance needs.”

“Combining our compliance practice and PTR software(TM) has had a tremendous impact at the Advantax National Compliance Center(TM),” said LeVan. “For example, a new data ‘scrub’ program was released in April, allowing users to seamlessly modify large amounts of data at the same time.” According to LeVan, this is just one example of how aligning the compliance and software business will bring better services to their clients.
