Increased instances of property tax fraud are costing government agencies millions of dollars in lost revenues and driving higher taxes for at-large communities. 

Homestead exemption fraud detection technology is an identity data-driven solution that analyzes billions of records and recognizes patterns and behaviors indicative of illegal property exemption, homeowner's credit and school tax relief claims. The ability to proactively identify tax fraud empowers agencies to recover revenues lost through illegal property-based claims and alleviates the pressure of an artificially inflated tax burden on local citizens.
