eFILE enables state and local governmental management with the ability to allow taxpayers and businesses to file and render their personal property values interactively online. A key benefit is to allow the business to modify current year information and submit online. The assessor's database is updated with the eFILE data upon submission. The interactive web site allows a taxpayer to make and save changes to current year information on one day then come back at a later time and finish filing. Database Technology based on IBM DB2.

Designed to improve the interaction between property appraisers and business taxpayers, eFILE has proved invaluable to both local government and its’ citizens. With the eFILE system, all size businesses can easily “render” or declare the annual value of their personal properties (inventory, machinery, equipment, furniture and fixtures, computers, vehicles, aircraft, etc.) over the Internet to their respective local property appraisal office. Taking full advantage of leading-edge technology, the system is very easy to use, and all that is required by the taxpayer is a PC and connection to the Internet. From the vantage point of the appraisal staff, office workflow is enhanced with increased productivity.

A Simple Process

As a taxpayer, just get on the Internet and logon to the URL on the rendition notice. From there, follow a few simple steps to render your personal property information:
- Verify/update owner information
- Verify/update general business information

Since eFILE is a multi-year system that allows a view and comparison of historical data, the whole process is quick and easy, allowing the taxpayer to update only the information that has changed from previous renditions.
