Lakewood, Colorado (PRWEB) March 06, 2013
TaxOps is in the running to be named the top oil and gas industry consulting firm in the Rocky Mountain region. TaxOps is a finalist for the Oil & Gas awards, an award given to industry producers and their service providers that demonstrate outstanding achievements and innovation in the upstream and midstream sectors of the industry.
“We are honored to have been chosen for this recognition,” Paul Hocever, partner in charge of the firm’s oil and gas sector, said. “Meeting the tax planning and tax-related business development needs of oil and gas companies is central to our practice at TaxOps.” TaxOps works with large and small-sized extraction and production (E&P) companies to structure their activities for optimal tax treatment.
This past year has been particularly critical from a tax planning standpoint due to political uncertainty related to credits and deductions integral to the E&P industry. “We continue to be involved with industry organizations in providing information to the lobby in support of preserving credits and deductions for independent producers,” he said.
Hundreds of organizations applied to the Oil & Gas awards. TaxOps is one of four firms chosen as finalists in the Consultancy of the Year category, and the only tax and accounting firm to make the list. Winners will be announced at a Gala in Denver on March 12, 2013, where Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper will give the keynote speech to over 120 leading oil and gas producers and their service providers.
