D.C. Office of Tax and Revenue - Real Property Tax Database

George LeVines filed this request with the Office of Tax and Revenue of the United States of America.
Awaiting Acknowledgement


From: George LeVines

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the DC Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

The Real Property Tax Database, which powers the application at https://www.taxpayerservicecenter.com/RP_Search.jsp?search_type=Assessment.

In addition, please provide copies of the record layout, code sheet and all relevant documentation regarding this data. I am requesting all data fields. If there are any fields that you must withhold by law, please cite this omission in the redaction log.

I would like to receive this data in electronic format. I can accept this data on CD-ROM, USB, via email or FTP.

To avoid problems with data, would you please provide a comma delimited or ASCII text file, a format that can be easily opened by any spreadsheet or database program. I can also accept ASCII text, dbase IV, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Access and many other formats (just let me know and I'll see if we can use it).

Any database program has the ability to easily output data in a variety of formats. If there is information that is exempt from disclosure, one of the great things about electronic records is that such a field of data can be redacted with a mouse click. Providing data electronically is fast, it's cheap, it saves everyone time.

If some of this material will take longer to provide than other portions, please provide information as soon as it is available.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter.

I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 15 business days, as the statute requires.
