• “At the end of our sales tax audit, UPTG lowered our liability by more than six figures, which was about a 42% reduction of tax and interest. I would certainly recommend this company for any business going through an audit in the State of Texas.”

    Pat Thompson
    Vice-President, Colo4
  • “Being our first audit, we were not sure what to expect. UPTG stepped in and within a couple of days wrapped up the entire audit with the State. We came out not owing a dime, paying only a minimal fee to UPTG and never even had to see or speak to the auditor.”

    Dwayne Thomason
    Owner, Thomason Funeral Home
  • "UPTG has provided extraordinary property tax service and fantastic results. The larger firms are hesitant to send their top people to meet with clients and gather data over several days. However, UPTG did just that with us. This dedication resulted in saving our franchisees over $100,000 each year over the last three years.”

    Glen Quon
    IHOP Inc. (Former Tax Manager)
  • "During these last three years United Paramount has saved our bank and several of our affiliated banks substantial sums, well in excess of $500,000 in property taxes. These savings go straight to our bottom line."
