Adding APNs to tax orders
TitlePoint features the ability to add APNs to an existing tax order. This feature is intended to support tax searching for multi-parcel orders.
When you add an APN to an existing tax order, you can receive Prior Year Taxes (formerly known as Extended Tax), together with a redemption schedule that shows the monthly payments required to bring property taxes current. This will also set in motion manual efforts by the TitleTax team to verify delinquent tax obligations and the terms of any repayment plans.
On a Full Tax order we also insure the accuracy of the tax data.
There is an additional fee for every APN added, which covers the cost of manual research and the insured tax coverage.
We advise against using the “add APN” feature to generate Prior Year Tax for customer service tax reports. In addition to generating more than you possibly need (like insured tax coverage and manual verification of tax balances), there is a less expensive way to obtain this information.
Special pricing for customer service tax reports
Recently, we notified our customers of a fee reduction for non-order Prior Year Tax inquiries. This adjustment was designed to enable our clients to order prior year tax information as a customer service add-on to a Current Tax search.
Current Tax search (also known as Customer Service Sheet) results list current tax status only. In order to provide prior year taxes you can perform a Prior Year Tax search for an additional fee, or open a new tax order.
The Prior Year Tax search is an ideal complement to the Current Tax report – and less expensive than the fee to add an APN to an open tax order.
Your Account Manager can explain how much you can save under the new pricing structure.
To take advantage of the special pricing, no action is required by current subscribers. The new pricing will reflect in your billing beginning with the March 2012 invoice.
If you wish to activate the Prior Year Tax search feature, please contact your Account Manager or call the Sales Desk (877.747.2537).
