Web Site Provides Nationwide Real Estate Tax Rates

Mortgage loan administrators have a new service they can rely on to provide access to real estate tax information from across the country.

First American Real Estate Tax Service has launched its Property Locator Service Database which provides Internet access to real estate tax data from more than 22,000 taxing authorities.

The service is being touted as the first nationwide real estate tax database in the real estate industry. "For the first time in the industry, First American is providing loan originators, via the convenience of the Internet and First American's FASTWeb, with the complete tax data they require to meet their time-sensitive business needs," said Greg Ciammario, executive vice president of First American Real Estate Tax Service.

It is anticipated that this service will save time for lenders. More information is available by contacting Gerry Smith, senior vice president of marketing and communications at First American, 800-229-8426.
