property tax collector's office
A county tax collector's office usually has two indexes to keep track of property tax payments:
- A street address index that lists the amount of property taxes paid on each property, as well as the names of the property owners that are paying the taxes on each property.
- An alphabetical index of the names of people, companies and organizations that own property in a county and the amount of property taxes they are paying on each property.
These indexes are usually kept on a computer terminal accessible at the tax collector's office.
