THE TRANSFORMATIONAL SOLUTION FOR ASSESSORS
Today, Assessors and local governments are challenged with meeting citizens’ expectations for accessing accurate, comprehensive property information. Information must be up-to-date, easy to find and understand, and available on any device if it is to meet the needs of those who use it and provide answers to their questions.
Authoritative property information has additional benefits. It promotes transparency between government and taxpayer, improving trust and confidence and building citizen engagement.
With property tax revenue making up the majority of city and county budgets in many areas, governments need to deliver.
HOW CAN GIS HELP?
GIS can provide the tools for the public – and internal users within the organization – to access the property information they need in a way that meets expectations for self-service, availability across devices, and easy interpretation. It allows up-to-date data to be automatically shared through web maps and apps, enables communication with taxpayers and educates users on how property values are determined and how they are affected over time.
