The state comptroller sent a reminder out today concerning EARS and EPTS submissions. In case you missed the email click HERE
To sum up the email, August 1st is the deadline for all Electronic Property Transaction Submissions (EPTS). Districts that have fewer than 200,000 taxable parcels but more than 10,000 must submit the Electronic Appraisal Roll Submission (EARS) by August 1st while all others have a deadline of September 1st.
On July 1st BIS Consulting was proud to unveil Lee Central Appraisal District’s website. The CAD and the taxpayers now have an amazing tool to use to easily stay connected and informed. In addition to having access to current forms, updated calendars and the latest tax information BIS products like Online Protest, Online Property Search and Online Maps will all become invaluable tools for both the CAD and the taxpayer.
After the recent Texas flooding and devastation BIS Consulting was contacted by area disaster personnel; Aaron Kreag and the GIS team collaborated on GIS solutions to help coordinate and facilitate search and rescue efforts. BIS voluntarily provided unlimited access to data and ESRI map services for consumption in applications and maps used during the recovery operation. Recognizing a gap and need in our state, BIS is planning an expansion of our involvement in domestic humanitarian and public safety initiatives.
GIS Maintenance customers are now able to obtain County Map Books from the GIS/Mapping team at BIS. Emails with links and instructions were recently sent. If you did not get one, have any questions or would like to make some suggestions please send us an email at GISsupport@bisconsultants.com If you have a custom map request we can help with those too, please get in touch!
