TSL Tools is a multi-user software package designed to assist with RP 520 pro rated tax calculations and Special District Tax Rate apportionment.
Module RP 520 Pro Rated Taxes can be used to calculate taxes owed due to an exemption removal. Just enter the swis, sbl, property address, school code, transfer date, exemption amount and homestead, if applicable, into the RP 520 database to calculate the pro rated tax for up to three years. Or, if you are allowed an ODBC Sybase connection to the RPS V4 database, you may query the assessment data for the information to be extracted to the RP 520 database, thus eliminating data entry.
You can then generate a detailed report of all parcels and taxes as well as automatically create an RPS V4 formatted batch transaction file to update the RPS database for the next tax cycle within this module.
A second module, Special District Extract, is able to access the RPS V4 special district database to retrieve the data required to generate an MS Excel spreadsheet. This spreadsheet can then be used to apportion tax rates. Upon completion of this process, all rates can be formatted for RPS V4 tax rate table import. Please Note: ODBC Sybase RPS V4 connection required for this module.
