Tax Recovery

80% of tax law is largely interpretive and based on precedent.  It takes an evolving, thorough understanding of tax law, its intent and precedents to ensure our clients take full advantage of the exemptions that are rightfully theirs.

It's Time we talk
  • HMT’s focus is to recover funds and credits, educate and continue to protect our clients from overpayment in the future

  • No other tax consultant has a team of former government tax auditors with as many as 35 years experience in government tax departments

  • 98.7% of our reviews result in a refund; however, if yours doesn’t, you do not pay a cent. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain

  • Our reputation for accuracy and precision usually results in a quick return of your overpayments and accrued interest

  • 9 out of 10 times, when we review records that were previously reviewed by another tax auditing firm, we find additional recoveries. A second set of eyes might be just what your business needs.

  • No other tax consultancy has matched our refund record. Our hallmark approach has uncovered hundreds of thousands of dollars in tax overpayments for our clients

  • We have led the industry in innovation, professionalism and in our ability to find sales tax and other overpayments, even where our competitors have already performed an audit

  • “Our HMT Revenue Specialist was very knowledgeable, professional and thorough. He made the process very easy for us and didn’t disrupt the day-to-day operations of our business. He is always willing to go the extra mile to answer any questions that may arise.”
