Up to the Challenge.


We work closely with forward-thinking property tax leaders to implement breakthrough solutions using Arist. And we’ve achieved some pretty impressive results.

Local Government Property Tax Transformation

North Carolina Association of County Commissioners

For all 100 counties in North Carolina, appraisal and tax collection were complex and challenging. Sometimes, the process worked exactly as intended; all too often, however, vast differences between business practices in different counties resulted in inconsistent application of the law—causing major issues throughout the state.

Rising to the challenge
Using the Arist platform, Farragut worked with the NCACC to develop the North Carolina Property Tax System (NCPTS), a cooperative technology initiative that automated and optimized the property tax process—including assessment and collection of real and personal properties. This led to greater consistency in appraisals and higher collection rates, while also creating a forum where counties can learn from one another and share in the cost of a robust and effective system—with 51% of the statewide property tax base served so far.

Statewide Vehicle Tax Transformation

North Carolina Department of Revenue

Vehicle registration fees and vehicle property taxes were being billed and paid separately, under a complex system in which each county was responsible for managing vehicle tax collections, while the state DMV collected registration fees. This led to data inconsistencies, duplicate costs and a steep erosion in voluntary compliance—with as many as 40% of vehicle owners not renewing or paying county taxes on time.

Rising to the challenge
Using the Arist platform, Farragut worked with the North Carolina Departments of Revenue and Transportation to launch North Carolina’s “Tag & Tax Together” system. This created a consistent, convenient way to pay annual vehicle tag renewals and vehicle property taxes at the same time—leading to an annual revenue increase of $220 million.

National Debt Setoff Transformation

NACo Financial Services Center

Collecting outstanding balances, including property taxes, from local residents has been a costly, time-consuming and unpleasant task for local governments.

Rising to the challenge
Using the Arist platform, Farragut worked with NACo Financial Services to launch their national Local Government Debt Setoff service. The new service was patterned after a successful joint venture by the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners and the North Carolina League of Municipalities which led to recovery of more than $240 million in unpaid taxes.

This results-oriented service enables counties to collect outstanding debts in a timely, cost-effective manner, by submitting delinquencies for offset against pending state personal income tax refunds and lottery winnings. And since the debtor is charged the local collection assistance fee, which supports program operations, participating counties incur little if any additional collection costs.
