Pittsburgh, PA (October 1, 2013) – Grant Street Group, the leading provider of web-based tax collection software in Florida, announced today that the Brevard County Tax Collector has signed a contract for a comprehensive suite of tax collection software. This includes TaxSys®, a state-of-the-art, web-based tax collection and billing system; PaymentExpress™, a full service payment processing solution for credit cards, debit cards and e-checks; and LienAuction®, Grant Street’s tax certificate auction platform.
Brevard County is the ninth largest county in the State, home to over half a million residents. Brevard will become the 17th Florida County Tax Collector Office to implement TaxSys since the system was launched in 2006. With the addition of Brevard County, TaxSys will collect over 52% of all property taxes in the State.
“Our experience with Grant Street – visiting their tax collector clients, attending their TaxSys User Group Meeting, and working with them on our 2013 tax sale – has been exceptional,” said Lisa Cullen, Brevard County Tax Collector. “TaxSys is a Florida-specific turnkey solution with numerous integrated services which will let us streamline internal business processes and provide more efficient services to the public,” continued Mrs. Cullen.
The conversion to TaxSys will begin in January 2014, with a scheduled completion date in August 2014. Grant Street’s RenewExpress™ services for online vehicle/vessel registrations will begin October 4, 2013 and PaymentExpress services for online and over-the-counter tax payments will begin in August 2014.
“The Brevard County Tax Collector is a very important addition to Grant Street Group’s client base on a number of levels,” said Ian Yorty, Grant Street Group’s Director of Florida Business Development. “Every county brings new tax collection expertise to the table. We leverage that expertise – and opportunity – to refine the application and conversion process during every new TaxSys implementation. We’re very excited to begin work with Brevard,” continued Mr. Yorty.
