Case Study: Cincinnati receives higher tax revenues faster through Civica’s Authority Tax
Consolidating three separate applications for processing tax returns into one has reaped
many benefits for the City of Cincinnati.
With a view to streamline services to tax payers and collect revenues more efficiently, the City of Cincinnati tax department embarked on a complete transformation involving the migration of 40 years of data while integrating disparate applications under one vendor and maintenance contract.
