PB2 Performance Report for the General Tax Administration Program, Report No. 98-73, March 1999
Full report in PDF format

  • For the 1997-98 year, the performance of the Property Tax Administration Program met its standards and slightly exceeded the previous year.
  • Tax roll uniformity remained high in Fiscal Year 1997-98, but declined slightly from the previous year.
  • Decreases in tax refund requests, number of tax roll review notices (issued due to tax roll problems), and the number of tax roll defects, indicate program oversight of county property appraisers appears to be effective.
  • The percentage of taxing authorities in total or substantial truth in millage (TRIM) compliance on initial submission increased indicating improved program supervision.
  • The program needs additional PB² measures to allow accountability for its oversight of tangible personal property assessments by county property appraisers and the quality of its processes for ensuring that property appraisers' assessments of property are at just value, as required by statute.
  • The program's accountability system met OPPAGA expectations in three of four areas. The program's performance measures do not assess all program functions and need some modifications.
  • We discussed our findings with the Executive Director of the Department of Revenue and program management. The department’s response is included in this report.
