Manufacturing taxpayers currently under a Fee-In-Lieu Tax Agreement (FILOT) may be making excessive FILOT payments.  This is due to either (1) The taxpayer is not taking advantage of all of the benefits entitled under the FILOT or may be making erroneous payments, or (2) Taxpayer or SC DOR computation errors.

Silver Oak has been successful in the past with a review strategy that may identify excessive FILOT payments and has recently discovered additional opportunities with this strategy.  We typically perform this service under a performance-based-fee arrangement; such that the taxpayer pays no fee unless we secure refunds.

Silver Oak specializes in tax abatement reviews in South Carolina, as well as other states that offer similar tax abatement programs.  And through this program, we have yet to review an abatement that does not contain an error – either through taxpayer error, taxing jurisdiction error, or interpretation error.
