PRA-GS offers a proven, comprehensive compliance review that preserves and enhances sales and use, district, and property tax revenues while minimizing revenue loss from misallocations. Our Misallocation Recovery service detects, documents, and corrects “misallocation” of local taxes. We will perform a data comparison of taxes reported and develop an inventory of potential taxpayer misallocations. Once this information is compiled PRA-GS will verify these misallocations and submit a reallocation request to the appropriate agency.
The Misallocation service is a benefits-based fee structure dependent on amount re-allocated to our clients.
Our Revenue Administration service can take much of the burden of data entry, billing, application and claims processing, funds distribution, compliance, and taxpayer support service off of you, while streamlining the processes and maintaining the highest degree of accuracy.
Our knowledgeable staff – together with interactive web technology and our secure systems – provide greater control over revenues without having to make resource and infrastructure investment. We also provide detailed online reporting to enable more timely decision making and appropriate audit planning.
The PRA-GS turn-key Revenue Administration solution doesn’t compromise current staff resources, making them available to address other pressing needs within the government’s operations. There’s no need to purchase or maintain tax administration software, invest in technology for records retention or disaster recovery, or absorb basic paper, printing and postage costs.
This service can be priced on a per-transaction basis or at a percentage of revenue processed fee structure. Pricing depends on the type of fee or tax administered.
Revenue Discovery & Recovery
PRA-GS has a proven revenue discovery & recovery system for identifying businesses that may be operating within your jurisdiction without proper licensing and/or without paying appropriate taxes. With the help of advanced analytics and business intelligence tools, we can determine patterns indicative of potential non-compliance. After the completion of the project we provide the jurisdiction with an updated database, allowing them to benefit from the full amount of future license fees.
PRA-GS receives only a percentage of the delinquent fees/ taxes discovered and recovered as a direct result of our services. Typically, there are no up-front costs for this purely “results-based” service.
Vehicle Location Services
In the United States, hundreds of millions of dollars are owed to cities, universities and other parking authorities. Some of the bigger cities in the U.S. have outstanding parking fines ranging from $200 million to $400 million. Yet, the evolution of collection methods has not evolved with the technology - until now.
PRA-GS now delivers the latest in License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology to parking authorities at no cost to the entity. We use infrared plate scanning technology with a 90% accuracy rate, allowing us to quickly locate cars with unpaid parking fines and alert the local authorities.
