Illinois ASBO Introduces Accubase as New Affinity Member Program

By Michael Jacoby posted 11-18-2021 08:01


The Illinois Association of School Business Officials (Illinois ASBO) has partnered with AccuBase Solutions as our newest Affinity Program partner. The relationship will facilitate the growth and use of property tax-based auditing analytics in Illinois school districts, allowing for the maximization of revenue, providing school finance officials accurate tax base data for use in short- and long-term budgeting, while simultaneously providing a potential reduction in the average homeowner property tax bill.

AccuBase systems are designed to capture all current and new value, allowing districts to maximize revenue, while potentially reducing the average homeowner property tax bill. AccuBase has developed a unique web-based, auditing platform that gives school business officials a dashboard vision of their current and historical property tax position. This technology provides for the annual valuation monitoring of the district’s tax base, combined with professional consulting and engagement services at the local assessment level. AccuBase also takes away the annual guesswork of acquiring assessment change and new construction numbers from local assessment jurisdictions, allowing public school administrators to drive decisions with new insight and efficiency.

“I have been involved in the Illinois property tax system and have worked side-by-side with many Illinois school districts for more than 20 years and have a true appreciation for the positive impact that the association has on Illinois schools,” said Warren Dixon, AccuBase Founder and CEO. “We are excited to be able to work with IASBO and its members, to develop new data tools that increase efficiency and insight. By linking up with some of the best minds in school finance, we are greatly accelerating the benefit and use of this technology.”

Dr. Michael Jacoby, Illinois ASBO Executive Director and former school business official and superintendent, said “Property Tax is the number one source of funding for our member districts. AccuBase finally gives our members vision, auditing, engagement and representation in the property tax cycle not had before. With this information in the hands of our members, I am convinced that the landscape of decision making will change rapidly from those based on assumptions to those driven by real data. Illinois ASBO is proud to partner with AccuBase.”

AccuBase and Illinois ASBO are highlighting AccuBase Web, a dynamic business intelligence tool which allows schools to drive funding decisions with competitive and comparative insight. It also gives a real-time view of the impact of COVID-19 pandemic to districts revenue and tax rate. The service and product were prominently featured at 2021 Annual Conference in a breakout session title “Impact of COVID-19 on Property Tax Revenue and Rates.”
