Global tax services and software provider Ryan has announced the acquisition of the assets of PS Johnson, a property tax consulting firm.
The strategic takeover is intended to strengthen the Dallas-headquartered group’s position in the North American property tax market.
Based in Ontario, PS Johnson specializes in prosecuting property tax appeals for corporate clients, negotiating tax issues with municipalities, and resolving property tax issues.
Through the transaction, senior professionals at PS Johnson will join Ryan, as the Canadian firm’s founder, Phill Johnson, retires from the industry.
Brint Ryan, chairman and CEO at Ryan, said: “Our property tax team has grown tremendously in Canada over the last few years.
“The addition of PS Johnson provides additional capabilities to our Ontario team and will provide the firm’s clients with access to a national network of experienced experts in property tax reduction and mitigation.”
Johnson added: “Ryan’s track record of exemplary client service and the firm’s award-winning work environment give me assurance that PS Johnson’s clients and professionals will be in good hands.
“I am looking forward to working alongside Ryan’s leadership team to successfully onboard our valued and longstanding clients.”
