Before she founded Floyd Company in 1991, Barbara Floyd became her first client, winning her first assessment appeal on her own home. Noticing that property owners were struggling to understanding the property tax appeal process, she missioned her new company to alleviate this stress filled process by assisting owners and investors in successfully appealing high property tax assessments.
Barbara knew that many commercial and residential property owners were unfamiliar with how to appeal their taxes and preferred spending their time growing their own businesses, instead of dealing with property taxes and assessments. She understood that while many people work hard at paying only their fair share of Income tax, very few knew how to make sure they paid only their fair share of property taxes.
So with a deep desire to help others, Barbara focused her expertise on property taxes and assessments — more specifically, commercial, investment, and residential rental property taxes — creating Floyd Company as Maryland’s Property Tax Reduction Specialists.
Over 25 years later, Barbara is proud that after successfully helping her clients to reduce their property taxes, most of her new clients are direct referrals from existing clients – a tribute to Floyd Company’s successful track record on property tax appeals. Everything told, she has successfully assisted more than 2,000 different clients through more than 30,000 appeals, ranging from owners with just one property to owners with 300 properties, and with assessments ranging from $10,000 to $25 million.
Barbara’s continuing mission is to ensure that her clients are paying no more than their fair share of real estate property taxes in Maryland.
