The FM Method

What we do for you . . .

Our approach has been proven in thousands of recovery cases. We do all the work. You are always in control & have final say.

Remember, we only get paid if you do: either money recovered or less money owed.

Forensic Recovery Timeline

Weeks 1-2
Our team requests and receives relevant documents.

Weeks 4-5
Our team analyzes the documents and develops our recovery plan for you. During that time, we submit tax & accounting details, schedules and refund petitions to you, our client, for approval.

2-6 Months
We submit all documentation, attend hearings & manage the process. Should we find superfluous taxes paid, you’ll either receive a check from the states or a refund on taxes due.

We provide a report and conduct a customized seminar at your office to help you avoid overpayments in the future.

Scott McClelland, Manager at Ingevity

“FM Cost containment is extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with; we have worked with their staff for a state audit defense and sales tax refund reviews for several of our Manufacturing facilities and they continue to effectively find refunds for us without occupying the time of our finance department. We plan to continue to use FM Cost Containment for future audits and sales tax recovery services for our 5 plants.”
