Fees for public documents should be reasonable and affordable (23K maps * $9 = $207,000) Fees should be based on cost of duplication or reproduction Benefits to public and economic development Higher Fees Increased assessor costs associated with sustaining a digital mapping system and services Necessary surcharges like courthouse improvement fund WV Tax Maps

31 §189-5 Tax Map Sales – PVC Recommendations
Scope. -- This regulation establishes the prices, procedures and locations for the purchase of surface tax maps and corresponding digital parcel files prepared by the assessors of the State. Authority to Set Fees. -- The Property Valuation Training and Procedures Commission sets the fees for tax map sales with sales subject to the Courthouse Facilities Improvement Fund surcharges in accordance with paragraph 3.2 of this rule. Non-Cadastral Map Data. -- Fees associated with aerial photography, addresses, road centerlines, elevation contours, digital elevation models, and other mapping layers acquired by county or local governments are outside the purview of PVC Customized Maps. -- The assessor is authorized to charge for the employees’ time at a reasonable base rate as well as the cost of consumables like paper and ink for customized map requests by the public. WV Tax Maps

32 §189-5 Tax Map Sales – PVC Recommendations
Map Sales by Department of Tax and Revenue. -- The Tax Map Sales Office of the State Department of Tax and Revenue will charge the same fees set forth in the price schedules for map products that it is authorized to sell. The Department of Tax and Revenue is authorized to sell paper or electronic “finished” tax maps but no GIS files (shapefiles, etc.) WV Tax Maps

33 §189-5 Tax Map Sales – PVC Recommendations
Tax Maps on the Internet. -- Assessors may choose not to charge for tax maps displayed on the Internet that allow the public to view parcel maps remotely and which require no interaction of office staff in the printing and distribution of tax maps. In addition, assessors may permit the public to download their digital Finished Tax Maps via their county website or designated agent at no cost. Digital Parcel Web Map Services on the Internet. -- Assessors may authorize agents to allow their parcels to be displayed as web map services which typically allow “viewing only” of parcels.

Non-Disclosure Agreements. -- Assessors may use a non-disclosure agreement as a legal contract between at least two parties to outline confidential material or information that the parties wish to share with one another for cadastral purposes, but wish to restrict access to or by third parties. WV Tax Maps

During the month of April, all county assessors who maintain automated systems shall submit their digital parcel boundary files and associated metadata to the State Tax Department in accordance with the prescribed format and submission guidelines. (§ ) WV Tax Maps

46 County Monitoring Plan (Objectives of New Monitoring Guidelines)
Synchronize assessment and mapping monitoring during same visitation More responsive and early detection in reporting deficiencies to PVC Annual monitoring of content and submission guidelines do not require visits to counties Identify automated ways to review map maintenance through IAS and other means without visiting counties WV Tax Maps

47 Recommendations - Property Tax Div.
STAFFING: Minimize staff changeover. Identify Lead GIS Manager for Surface Tax Maps and Program Supervisor. Provide outreach and technical support services. OUTREACH: Develop and sponsors GIS training programs for assessors and mappers. Publish resources on Web. DATA SHARING: Ensure there is reciprocal relationship between the PTD and counties for sharing mineral and surface tax parcels. STANDARDS: Develop GIS database standards. GIS/IAS INTEGRATION: Supervise integration of county statewide GIS parcels and IAS records into statewide layer for “viewing only” purposes. Develop an easy process for counties to download IAS data to merge with GIS parcels. MAINTENANCE: Establish a digital maintenance program for counties that need to outsource parcel maintenance. MONITORING: Update monitoring procedures. When writing county inspections cite appropriate regulations for deficiencies. WV Tax Maps PVC Subcommittee Presentation

Out Source: Counties outsource directly with a qualified vendor for digital maintenance services (Hampshire, Mineral, Pendleton, Lewis, Taylor, Gilmer, Clay) Counties outsource maintenances services performed by a vendor under contract with the Property Tax Division WV Tax Maps PVC Subcommittee Presentation

60 Staff Recommendations
IAAO 2012 Standard on Digital Cadastral Maps and Parcel Identifiers 3.11 Staff and Training An effective digital cadastral mapping and deed-processing program requires approximately one staff person per 10,000 to 20,000 parcels. This number may be modified depending on the following factors: Degree of automation and efficiency in deed processing and mapping work flow Economies of scale in larger jurisdictions Need to create or recreate digital map layer Volume of deed processing work Ratio of ownership name changes to transfers that create new parcels Volume of new subdivision and condominium plats filed Need to respond to public requests for map and ownership information Reliance on contracted mapping services Need to create and maintain layers for non-assessment purposes, such as zoning, transportation planning, and emergency response Ease of deed processing, especially if transfers contain an accurate parcel identifier WV Tax Maps
