The following table summarizes a few of the features of GeoTAX Premium.

GeoTAX Feature


The ability to append current geocodes for state, county, township (MCD/CCD), and tax jurisdictions (place) to address records based on the physical location of the address (street-level matching) or on the ZIP+4 (postal matching).

You can stay current on boundaries, including tax jurisdictions (place) and the resulting tax jurisdiction assignments to street and postal information.

The ability to match your address records to state-supplied address listings.

You can remain compliant with emerging tax jurisdiction assignment requirements mandated by new federal and state laws. Communications services can take advantage of the Mobile Telecommunications Sourcing Act and the state of Florida’s Tax Simplification Law.

The ability to create your own database of address-to-geocode records and to match against the database.

If you have geographic areas you want coded in a certain way, the User Auxiliary file allows you to use your own custom coded records.

The ability to calculate latitude/longitude coordinates for individual address locations (including the use of interpolation and offset).

This allows you to determine the individual address location for mapping purposes.

The ability to cross reference and transfer tax jurisdiction information to tax compliance systems, billing applications, and enterprise resource planning systems.

This allows you to cross reference GeoTAX results with tax tables and other tax-related programs. It also provides you with the ability to convert standard jurisdiction codes to proprietary jurisdiction codes utilized by other vendors’ tax compliance software.

The ability to output matched data in a format that can be read into GIS mapping software.

This allows you to pull coded/matched address records into a GIS system to view them on a map.

The ability to be used in batch and interactive environments.

In batch mode, you process data in one pass, linking directly into tax tables and billing systems.

The ability to set a buffer radius.

This provides you with a way to set a buffer distance for the boundaries defined in the spatial txb files. This allows for the return of a distance to border calculation and confidence value for place, township and special tax boundaries.

The ability to create a user-defined boundary file.

This provides you with a way to use information you have gathered to create your own user-defined boundary file. For information on creating your own boundary file, see the Boundary File Conversion Utility User’s Guide.

The ability to match against Payroll Tax Correspondence (PTC) files.

Precisely provides PTC files for most major payroll companies. Please contact your Precisely Software Sales Executive for information on the PTC files available.
