SPECIAL REPORT: Insights from Kurz Group, Inc.
GlobeSt.com’s Amy Wolf Sorter will share insights from Kurz Group, Inc. in a Special Report for the site. This Dallas-based national property tax consulting firm has served the greater DFW area for 25 years. The company specializes in lowering clients’ tax liabilities and maximizing their tax savings. As it celebrates its silver anniversary this year, Kurz Group reflects on the state of the property tax consulting industry and its own business. Their industry and the way they do business have changed a great deal over the last two decades, thanks to improved technology and increased access to information today.
These thoughts are particularly relevant now through the end of May, which marks the deadline for commercial property owners to appeal the appraised values of their properties.
The Kurz Group celebrates its silver anniversary this year. Founded in 1987 by Rick Kurz, what started as a one-man shop has grown to a company of 14 employees today. Kurz Group, one of the largest property tax consulting firms in North Texas, has thrived as a result of hard work, loyalty and a constant commitment to its clients.
While these strongholds have remained unchanged, the way the company operates today has changed significantly since the late 1980’s. Rick and Jeff Kurz, Rick’s brother and co-managing partner who joined the firm in 1990, have seen the appraisal districts transform before their eyes over the last 25 years. Today, you’ll no longer see the brothers scanning property listings on computers down at the Dallas Central Appraisal District at 7 a.m.
