MPTS provides a fully integrated Assessor system with streamlined processing for increased efficiency.
Appraiser, appraisal, and personal property are just a few of the core functions provided on the system.
MPTS provides these Assessor functions and more:
MPTS includes all of these features within the Secured Real Property module. Please see further down for Unsecured Property details.

Address corrections will be reflected on the tax roll for all secured, unsecured, and supplemental assessments. MPTS also performs standard system functions on the legal description file for assessments.
Please see the Appraiser/Appraisal tab for more details.
Attributes for assessments designated as a business, both secured and unsecured, are maintained within MPTS. A series of resource tables with customizable parameters for each county drive business valuations. Counties with other aircraft valuation processes may also use the Aircraft interface to import aircraft values with up to 24 valuation components per aircraft. State-mandated BOE reports and files are created at end-of-year processing.
MPTS maintains a wide range of exemption information, including Homeowners, Veterans, Religious, Hospitals, Libraries, Museums, Public Schools, Cemeteries, Colleges, Boats, Aircraft, Government entities, and more.
MPTS displays a comprehensive view of Assessment information via the Assessor Inquiry screen.
General inquiry information is available through screens developed to restrict confidential Assessment information from the public while still providing general content.
MPTS facilitates notes throughout the system and implements appropriate security for Public/Private and confidential notes.
MPTS provides for the tracking and maintenance of all ownership information of real property transfers.
When the Assessor parcel map page changes and new map books are created, the remap function gives parcels in an existing Map Book/Page the unique parcel number the mapping division assigns. The newly assigned parcel numbers are attached to all assessments linked to the original parcel. The parcel numbers that are inactivated are given an inactive status. Parcel splits and subdivision creation is easily performed in MPTS by copying existing parcel data from originating parcels to the new parcels.
Roll Assessee Maintenance
MPTS maintains the Roll Assessee file for secured and unsecured assessments as of the January 1 Lien Date. If a transfer occurs after the January 1 lien date, the system will retain the Assessee (old owner) as the Roll Assessee on this file. The creation of Roll Assessee thru the Transfer Process is an automatic function controlled by the system based on the Assessor Roll Year on the System Control File and the Event Date.
Roll corrections allow for adding, modifying, or removing data on the tax roll for all assessments. Corrections for escapes, changes, and refunds are applicable to both current and delinquent rolls, and notices for Changes to the I601 Roll and Escape notices can be generated and printed. All completed Roll Corrections are accessible for Auditor processing.
MPTS is designed to add a situs address or multiple situs addresses to an Assessment.
The transfer process module is used to change ownership of assessments in the property systems. Change of ownership updates flow through the system to update Assessor, Auditor, and Tax Collector system files. This module also creates Special Supplementals for prior-year appraisals.

Aircraft included in PP may be processed using the interface between the Blue Book Aircraft valuation software and MPTS, with up to 24 value components for aircraft.
