Rfp 2016-0016 Taxpayer Location Services


We are no longer accepting submissions.

What is it?

The Department of Finance is seeking proposals from qualified companies, vendors, and agencies for Taxpayer Location Services. The Department of Finance is responsible for the collection and investment of all operating cash of the City. The Department bills and collects certain tax revenue, is responsible for tax record management and maintenance, including the management of real estate taxpayer programs such as Act 77 Senior Relief and Act 50 Homestead Exemption, and is responsible for investigations and audits of tax accounts. The Department manages City-wide real estate through data-driven performance program that tracks delinquencies, sales, and opportunities for development in conjunction with the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), community development corporations (CDC’s) and private developers. The Department also serves as the tax collector for the Pittsburgh School District and provides all of the above services to the school district. The City is seeking Taxpayer Location Services to conduct investigations to ensure all taxpayers or businesses conducting business within the City are paying the taxes that are relevant. Specifically, we are trying to target taxpayers who are working in the city but not paying any taxes at all. The City wants the respondent to focus their investigative services on the Local Service, Amusement, Earned Income, Payroll Preparation, Institution & Service Privilege, Deed Transfer, and Parking taxes as well as the Facility Usage Fee and Telecommunication License. More information on these taxes and fees can be found at http://pittsburghpa.gov/finance/tax-forms.
