Jackson County Chooses Manatron’s Integrated Property Tax Software: Portage-based Manatron Inc., a provider of integrated property tax and land administration software for governments worldwide, announced that Jackson County, Oregon has contracted with the company to implement its Government Revenue Management software. This will include the installation of GRM CAMA, which assists in the mass appraisal and assessment of property values, and GRM Tax, a software system that allows tax officials to maintain, bill, collect and distribute property and other taxes. Jackson County will be Manatron’s 10th client in the state of Oregon. Jackson County selected Manatron based on the company’s extensive experience in Oregon, Manatron’s specific knowledge of the state’s tax and appraisal code, as well as for the high-value functionality and features of its products. The Jackson County tax and assessment offices are responsible for more than 97,000 tax accounts. Manatron’s GRM installation replaces the county’s former application developed in-state with a commercial, off-the-shelf property tax system, which will provide the Jackson County staff with more technical support, as well as increased efficiency across both tax and assessment offices. The software also provides the county with additional functionality for data query, reporting and analysis. Manatron, a Thomson Reuters business, provides software and services for governments worldwide to completely, fairly and efficiently assess real and personal property, and to bill and collect the related property taxes in their jurisdictions. Manatron’s software manages the entire property life cycle, which includes land registry, mapping, deed recording, land records, GIS (Geographic Information System) integration, valuation, assessment administration, personal property, business licenses, cashiering, tax billing and collection, delinquents and tax sales and e-government.
