Real Property Tax Administration Technology Improvement Grant Program (RPTATIP)
JoAnn Whalen, New York State Office of Real Property Services
The Office of Real Property Services (ORPS) has established the Real Property Tax Administration Technology Improvement grant program to advance the agency’s mission “to support local governments in their pursuit of real property tax equity.” Users of parcel level data can be provided more effective and efficient access to the information they need through the sharing of parcel level data, advancements in the use of technology and integrated real property systems. An important component to this grant program is to enable taxpayers, both current and potential, to gain access to parcel level data and sales information with greater ease and efficiency. Also important is improving the efficiency and effectiveness of business processes through intergovernmental collaboration and cooperation in the use of real property data. JoAnn Whalen of the New York State Office of Real Property Services presented an overview of the 2005-06 RPTATIP project and results, and proposals and time frames for the 2006-07 RPTATIP project.
