  • Program Licensing/Inspections
    Has passing inspections become a matter of chance?
    With the advent of the Bureau of Human Services Licensing, the landscape changed and so did many of DPW's enforcement procedures for licensing and inspections. Not all changes are smooth.

  • Tax Exemption Challenges
    Has your tax exemption been challenged?
    Recent case law has prompted several school districts to challenge the tax exempt properties of numerous nonprofit institutions. These challenges have been successful in many instances because of the corporate structures that the property holders have adopted. If your property's tax exemption has been challenged or you are about to file for an exemption contact us to explore your options and discover how to avoid costly problems in the future.
