Sanford, FL (PRWEB) May 13, 2014
Tax deed sales, conducted by county clerks and tax collectors, are a common method for collecting overdue ad valorem or real property taxes. These sales often allow bidders to purchase tax deeds to properties that may be far more valuable that the amount of taxes owed, resulting in highly competitive bidding for the rights to acquire the deeds. The tax deed sale process involves a complex series of steps, including authentication of ownership, notification of parties, confirmation of funds, and precise distribution of tax revenues to multiple governmental entities and departments.
Pioneer Technology Group, a company specializing in technology for counties, courts, and private and public sector real estate information, has developed a new system designed specifically to manage the intricate process of executing tax deed sales. Today the company announced that it has installed the first system of its kind, TaxSmart, in Indian River County, FL.
“It has been a pleasure working with the Pioneer support and development team to successfully accomplish a common goal, creating a tax deed system that will accommodate and manage one of the most complex and challenging areas for all Clerk’s offices in the state of Florida” said Christie Price, Recording Division Supervisor of Indian River County. “The TaxSmart system is certainly going to be a tremendous help to us. The system is very user friendly, and our staff picked up on it quickly upon installation. I told the team at Pioneer that they almost made it too easy for us to use!”
“We’re excited to add TaxSmart to our suite of products, and Indian River County is an ideal launching point due to their leadership utilizing technology to gain efficiency” said Steve Rumsey, President of Pioneer Technology Group. “The TaxSmart system is a perfect complement to our Landmark Official Records system, Benchmark Court Case system, and our property and tourist tax processing systems. There’s tremendous demand in the market for tax deed technology, and TaxSmart is a prime example of how we partner with our customers in product development and implementation.
