Appraisal Information System (AIS) Suite

At its base, AIS™ is an administrative tool for tracking property locations, ownership and transfers of ownership, assessed amounts and taxes paid on property as well as the history of assessed values and taxes on a property. It tracks special tax exemptions from homestead to large commercial exemptions. It also keeps offices in compliance with government regulations.

AIS goes far beyond its base though with support of:

  • Fields and pages are customizable.
  • Submission is only allowed after all required fields under all pages have been filled in.

i3-S&S offers a solution that allows businesses to report their assets to assessment appraisal agencies. This process usually starts with paper forms filled out and mailed to the appraisal office. Upon receipt, the office manually enters this information into their AIS system, which are entered in online in easy tab through fields. Applicable parties receive emails with reports while AIS™ automatically attaches the report to the businesses’ assessment record.
Many of the tasks that are performed for property owners by an Assessment Appraiser’s office require the owner’s signature on various documents like Homestead applications, Special Assessment level applications, and Assessment Certificates. Managing all of these forms can be challenging and can also utilize a lot of storage space.
We’ve developed a Signature Pad module that allows electronic signing of documents which are directly imported into AIS™, providing paperless automation and streamlined form management.
AIS™ stores deed information, including selling prices that usually represent all items on an assessment. Using CAMA Stats that sales information, the CAMA information and the assessed values on the tax roll can be viewed side by side. The sale price and price per square foot of the improvement can then be extracted. CAMA Stats presents the mean and median sales prices, and the assessment to sales ratio values. The data can be filter by areas representing subdivisions or defined marketing areas. Ratios in particular areas can quickly identify possible discrepancies in tax roll data. A direct link back into AIS allows for immediate adjustments to assessment and CAMA data.
Remaining objective when determining the value of a structure and evaluating its attributes, whether it’s residential or commercial, can be tricky. If you send three people to the same home, they may come back with three different evaluations of its quality and condition.
i3-S&S designed the Image Gallery as a way to minimize subjective evaluations in an office. Starting with a subject property photo, a gallery of images is available to compare the subject image with others that have already been classified with attributes like condition and quality.
In residential areas where property sales are available, median or average sale prices are often used to derive at costs per square foot, which can then be applied to neighboring homes or areas with little or no active sales.
AIS™ stores historical sales information of assessments. That sales information can be exported and then imported into Sales Stats. This solution presents the sales data alongside assessed values on the tax roll. Average, median, minimum, maximum and ratio values are presented. The data can be filtered by subdivisions or defined neighborhoods. A direct link back into AIS™ allows for immediate adjustments to assessment values.
Watercraft can amount to huge assets. When an assessment appraiser’s office can put those assets on their tax roll, they can claim the taxes paid on them for the community they represent.
The Watercraft solution uploads information on the watercraft vessels an office is claiming on their roll and compares it to what others are claiming. All participating offices have access to the duplicate records it generates allowing duplicates to be resolved.
