USE CASE

See How to Use This App Collection and Data for Specific Purposes 

1. Capture

Let’s say you are a lobbyist for a taxpayer association.  The legislature is proposing to change the tax rate applied to a specific type of property.  You are interested in what the current rate is for this property and what the rate has been historically.  

2. Segment

It would be great to see this information by taxing jurisdiction (state, county, or city). You head to this portal’s tax application. Once inside, you select the appropriate page and select the desired filters.

3. Share

You calculate the impact of the change in this rate for each taxing jurisdiction, and you export the relevant data to MS excel.  As a lobbyist, this functionality provides you with the information you need to argue either pro or con for the proposed legislation.

ABOUT JVISION

Terry Johnson created this application after his retirement from 40 years of working with the Montana state government. During his career, he explored and learned many of the unique operations of state and local government including the information technology tools to access data. His skills broadened to include finances, tax policies, economics, and legislative processes and procedures. After retirement, Terry began part-time natural resource research and analysis for the Bureau of Business and Economic Research at the University of Montana. Since, he decided to pursue a part-time consulting career taking data and creating good analysis. Using the latest information technology tools (Microsoft BI) Terry puts this good data to use.
