As a leading source of revenue for states (source: U.S. Census Bureau, “Quarterly Summary of State and Local Government Tax Revenue,” September 24, 2013), property tax is stringently enforced as government continues to address budget shortfalls. Currently there are more than 18,361 taxing authorities collecting property tax in the United States, each with varying rules and regulations on state taxation.
“Property tax is based on the values and location of property at a specific point in time, so knowing the key filing, appeals and tax payment due dates in various states is critical to cost effectively managing property tax compliance,” said Carla Yrjanson, vice president of tax research and content at Thomson Reuters. “The information in this report is one of the many ways we help companies increase control, while lowering costs and risk over the property tax compliance process.”
This report exemplifies the kind of data that is automatically incorporated in detail in Thomson Reuters’ ONESOURCE Property Tax software. Thomson Reuters’ in-house property tax research and content experts monitor changes in key property tax related dates for all 50 states and Puerto Rico.
