Some of the most Frequently Asked Questions we get about Rethink Solutions as a company, our
itmalink software and property tax in general.
itamlink stands for Internet Total Asset Management describing how our online platform connects and manages real estate assets in a multi-property portfolio.
Personal property tax is an annual tax imposed on movable assets such as machinery, furniture, electronics…etc. whereas real estate property tax is charged on fixed property like land, homes, buildings, parking lots…etc. Personal property taxes are, like many other taxes, based on self-reporting of values. However, for real estate property taxes the assessment, or value, of the property is determined by the taxing jurisdiction. This makes property tax unique in comparison to not just personal property taxes, but most other taxes as well.
As one of the largest expenses associated with a multi-property portfolio, having a dedicated software to manage this liability is a critical part of reducing cost and mitigating risk. Using a software that cannot handle the full complexities of the real estate property tax lifecycle could be costing thousands of dollars in over-payments and missed opportunities, or even more when considering employee effort and lost time. Many personal property software tools “claim” to manage both personal and real estate tax in one system but fail to properly apply key real estate tax functions such as allocations/recoveries, tax forecasting, budgeting and accruals across the entire property portfolio. That is because they are built primarily for core personal property functions that are typically focused on a single year. In fact, because these personal property systems are geared towards single year review and accessibility, they are efficient for personal property tax administration, but mostly inefficient for real estate tax management that requires a multi-year analytical data model.
