Tyler to upgrade tax collection for Tennessee

Tyler Technologies Inc. will provide Tennessee with a new property tax management system that will enable the state and its counties to access the database and software from one location.

The contract is worth about $15.1 million and is the largest single software deal in the Dallas business' history, the company said.

Eighty-eight of Tennessee's 95 counties use various systems for their property assessments, appraisals and taxation. New statute requirements and higher levels of services provided by the state have made those systems outmoded.

Tyler Technologies' iasWorld property tax software and integrated, Web-based solutions will provide the state and its counties with centralized technology, a single point of contact for support issues and the ability to upgrade the software through continued enhancements, said Andrew Teed, president of Tyler's appraisal and tax solutions unit.

The new system, which will be used by about 880 state, county and local government employees, includes assessment administration, computer-assisted mass appraisal, personal property, inquiry and appeals tracking and tax extension applications. IasWorld can also exchange data with other applications and document management systems.

Under the contract, Tennessee will also receive software licenses, implementation services and support.
