Webinar: The Real Property Impact of COVID-19: A Way Forward

Webinar Date:

As companies from a variety of industry sectors begin to reopen and evaluate the short- and long-term economic impact of COVID-19 on their respective businesses, an evolving spectrum of tax planning issues and savings opportunities have become center stage.

COVID-19’s impact is wide-sweeping, decimating sectors like retail, tourism, hotels, transportation, manufacturing of non-essential goods, and vastly disrupting global supply chains. Many companies lack the liquidity to withstand the uncertainty and timing of the economic downturn.

One significant outcome that the uncertainty and economic ripple effects of this pandemic has impacted are the values of real and personal property assets subject to taxation. The purpose in this session will be determining how to proceed under these rapidly changing market conditions by focusing on valuation fundamentals and utilizing protocols learned from previous economic volatility that crossed multiple real estate sectors.

In this webinar, attendees will gain an understanding of:

  • The rapidly changing macro-economic developments impacting values in the US and variability among states and regions.
  • Key current developments and prospective changes impacting the values of representative industries and the interplay of these variables with other industry sectors.
  • Identification and evaluation of relevant appraisal methodologies or evidence required specific to the property and supportable for property tax valuation purposes
  • Key aspects of state and local variability and areas of focus as impacted by appraisal revaluation cycles, assessment lag, and other factors that may impact the timing of potential assessment adjustments.
