Find out how GIS apps are adding value to quintile reassessment and becoming synonymous with helping counties meet their state mandated requirements.

With Assessors required by law to physically view properties that are subject to taxation at least once every five years, counties place critical importance on having an effective quintile plan in place. While no specific format is required, the right plan defines expectations and is instrumental in keeping these in-person inspections on target, mapping out each stage of the reassessment process including individual staff roles. Adhering to a good plan maximizes efficiency, ensuring the same method is followed consistently by everyone, and enables counties to avoid the consequences of failure to meet requirements.

Counties are increasingly using technology as part of their plan to stay on track. GIS-based solutions unlock the potential to become even more efficient, using automation where possible and allowing Assessors to visualize the process and track progress. Pro-West works with counties to empower them to gain greater control over quintile reassessment and streamline the entire process. Pro-West’s quintile solution can be used by both county Assessors and local Assessors outside the organization, enabling Assessors to view real time progress and automate the process of returning responses to the state.

Many counties will track all of the detailed assessment info in their tax systems, but lack a means to visualize the inspection process. That visualization is where Pro-West’s Quintile Assessments Tracker comes in. Based in ArcGIS Online, the app centralizes, streamlines and enhances the quintile process with visualization tools, providing instant insight into its current state. See who is responsible for which inspections, view a web map to track progress to date and plan for what remains to be done, track year-on-year assessments to maintain compliance with quintile requirements, and view individual property inspections. Of course, the Tracker is easy to use and mobile-friendly.
