New Webinar Series Launching January 2021

Local governments nationwide are discovering the new GIS-based solution for Assessors, Esri’s Equitable Property Value Initiative for ArcGIS Hub. This Esri solution is a configuration of ArcGIS Hub and designed to enable organizations to share critical information through information-driven initiatives. The Equitable Property Value (EPV) initiative shares authoritative property information, educates taxpayers, and collects feedback from taxpayers to promote fair and equitable property assessments.

But what does it take to deploy EPV? What is involved behind the scenes to set up the solutions of which it is comprised?

The answers lie in local government’s most critical dataset: tax parcels. Using authoritative and accurate parcel data, the opportunities to add value to an organization’s Enterprise GIS through ArcGIS Solutions are transformational.

Each session in the series will focus on a key business process that is rooted in the tax parcel data, and that forms a building block of the Equitable Property Value initiative. Join us as we explore how each solution works, what makes them work together, and how your tax parcel data can bring even more value to your organization.

Session 3: Recorded Documents

February 11, 2021, 11:00am-12:00pm CST

Recorded documents related to real property help provide a complete picture about land ownership. Many organizations can integrate document records systems with GIS, but doing so can be a challenge for agencies without system integration capabilities. Discover how local governments can rely on location-based parcel solutions to store and distribute this information.

Session 4: Tax Distribution

March 17, 2021, 11:00am-12:00pm CST

Property taxes are critical to ensuring that our public services receive the funding requried to support our ways of life. This includes paying for our roads and infrastructure, public schools, community outreach programs, and many other services and resources. Discover how ArcGIS Solutions can enable organizations to manage this information, helping to promote transparency in relation to how a property’s tax dollars are distributed amongst community services.

Session 5: Tax Delinquency

April 13, 2021, 11:00am-12:00pm CST

Local governments are tasked with keeping track of unpaid property taxes – a process that is often performed using an organization’s tax system. Some information is available to the general public and can result in land sales promoted through local newspapers and county websites. Learn how GIS and your tax parcels can be used to help track, manage and share information about property tax status.

Session 6: Tax Reverted Property

May 5, 2021, 11:00am-12:00pm CST

Tax reverted properties and properties with unpaid taxes have a significant impact on a local government’s revenue. Multiple departments may be helping to manage processes like tax forfeiture and foreclosure and ensure they work smoothly, and GIS can help. Streamlined location-based workflows can help departments document tax forfeiture and foreclosed properties, and manage the process of returning them to the active tax roll.

Session 7: Tax Reverted Property Sales

May 27, 2021, 11:00am-12:00pm CST

For many tax foreclosed properties, the result is the sale of the property at public auction. These property sales must be prepared and promoted to ensure that the property is sold and brought back onto the tax roll. Learn how GIS solutions can be used to help manage and track property foreclosure processes and market available sales to interested buyers.
