Duff & Phelps Launches Tax Advisory Service

Duff & Phelps launched a Strategic Tax Advisory Services practice, which will be co-led by new Managing Directors Joseph Schmidt and Catherine Hunter. Says the firm:
The Strategic Tax Advisory Services practice provides advice on procurement processes related to capital investments captured within a company's supply chain. The new practice consists of a multidisciplinary team focused on optimizing the net present value of capital investments through property tax savings, business incentives, sales and use tax credits and reductions in federal and state income tax. In addition to ensuring appropriate assessments are made, these services help companies mitigate tax audit exposure, improve compliance with Sarbanes Oxley and enhance stakeholder value.
Schmidt will be in the firm's Atlanta office, joining from Deloitte Tax LLP, where he was tax director and a member of the National and Multistate Restructuring practice. Hunter joins the firm's Dallas office from Kells Group, where she was a Founding Partner. Previously, she'd worked at A.T. Kearney.

Here's the announcement.
