6250 North River Road, 2nd Floor | Rosemont, (Chicago) Illinois, 60018

As owners, occupiers and managers of multi-property portfolios globalize and encounter more sophisticated regulatory, economic and technological demands there is an increasing shift to a more top-down, collaborative approach to management. Organizations must focus on distributing expertise and sharing data across teams, places and corporate practice groups. In essence, dictating uniform processes and data standards centrally and feeding down to distributed teams.

This workshop will feature experienced corporate property tax managers and representatives from IPTI’s Corporate Advisory Committee. Here they will share their own experiences and review strategies and best practices for effective property tax management and collaboration in relation to:

  • the role of mediation,
  • use of technology,
  • the need for independent valuation policies,
  • selection of experts and legal counsel, and
  • corporate challenges related to global / multijurisdictional portfolios.

The International Property Tax Institute (IPTI), with the assistance of its Corporate Advisory Committee, will conduct a one-day workshop which will include experience sharing and interactive discussions dealing with the above challenges.

This one-day workshop is open only to Corporate Representatives. Register here.
