Trust our Tax Jurisdiction Layers To Deliver Positional and Up-to-Date Accuracy

Because the location intelligence behind our tax jurisdiction layers is parcel-based and diligently maintained, address errors common to solutions that use a ZIP code lookup table may not occur. Zip codes are problematic because:

  • Municipal boundaries constantly change
  • A postal city may not be the same as a taxing city
  • ZIP codes may cross both municipal and county boundaries

Fingertip Access to Reduce Errors and False Positives

With over 8,000 tax jurisdictions collecting multiple taxes, keeping track of each and every taxing authority for every address could be a logistical nightmare.

Quality Control

Every Tax Jurisdiction Layer is diligently maintained by highly trained professionals. Address mistakes are virtually eliminated due to the use of our advanced geocoding technology.

Reliable Data

Our extensive parcel and municipal boundary data determines the correct tax jurisdiction of an address above and beyond the FIPS Place Code. This means you can rest easy knowing the service or delivery address is the right one.

Easy Access

Tax Jurisdiction and boundary information via Xiance® offers easy and affordable access to one or all of our many Tax Jurisdiction Layers.
