Azavar has been selected by Forest View, Illinois to conduct a comprehensive review of its taxes and fees. We are pleased to partner with this unique Cook County community, which lies along Chicago's west side border.
One key reason that municipalities seek out tax compliance audits is that they suspect what we call a revenue leak— a loss of income from taxes and fees caused by errors to tax rolls.
Growing borders can lead to revenue discrepancies
Errors may occur when communities have experienced rapid growth, or, in Forest View’s case—annexation. Starting in the 1950s, Forest View has steadily annexed unincorporated parcels to expand its tax base. This area’s unique location makes it a rich area for industry. With the Chicago Sanitary & Shipping Canal and Interstate 55 running through the center of the community, plus close proximity to Midway Airport, many industrial businesses have settled in the area.
It's time to take a look at the records and make sure that Forest View’s receipts match expectations. We’ll take a look at revenue, such as franchise fees and utility taxes, sales and hotel-motel taxes, and more. Through tax compliance audits, Azavar’s local revenue team can ensure every business is paying its fair share toward supporting the Forest View way of life.
Secure a revenue review partner
Now is the perfect time to conduct revenue reviews, as many local governments need to ensure a steady flow of revenue, and a transparent and supportive business climate.
