Hotel Property Tax Assessments & Appeals in Canada
Hotels need our attention right now
Hotels continue to be one of the most vulnerable asset classes as the world emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic. Dependent on travel (restrictive) and often international travel (highly restrictive), it’s expected that hotels face a longer timeline to stabilized operations than other hard hit asset classes. Because of this, the hospitality tax experts at Altus Group are looking at our client’s property taxes over the long-term, and preparing now for future years. One thing that hasn’t changed is to document everything, but unlike in past years, we are now recommending you provide financial statements and budgets to assessing authorities.
We base any recommendations, whether on appeal opportunities, providing documentation, budgeting, among others, on decades of specific hospitality experience in municipalities across the nation. We currently represent over 100,000 rooms across Canada worth over $17 billion dollars. Supporting our clients during this challenging time is unlike any challenge we’ve faced before.
