Considerations for Splitting a Bill

  • If the Child Parcel Number does not exist in TA, at the Parent record in Manage Property Records | View | Descriptions | Splits History use the New Split option to add split(s).
    • Note, in Pontem Tax Receipting this rule does not apply.
  • The bill total of all Child parcels must match the total of the Parent bill. The last bill split may require minor adjustment to accommodate this rule.
  • Any required additions or changes to the Tax Bill Details (levies) are accomplished using Edit Tax Bill in Tax Bills and Collections.
    • An example of this would be a garbage assessment on the Parent required to be included on each new Child’s tax bill. This is not a value to be split, but a levy on each bill that should be included.
