We're building the plumbing system of real estate, starting with property taxes.
Each year, American local governments — cities, counties, school districts, and other special districts — collectively raise more than $500 billion in property taxes. Each locality independently designs, administers, and collects what, in aggregate, is the largest single source of revenue for American local governments.
The result is a patchwork of more than 20,000 unique property tax regimes — a regulatory and compliance nightmare for institutional real estate operators and enterprises with large real estate footprints.
We built TaxProper to solve this problem. Our product abstracts away all of the messiness of our property tax system for our customers. In building TaxProper, however, we realized there are dozens of other areas as painful as the property tax system that intersect with property ownership — from interacting with millions of homeowner associations (HOAs) to paying your utility bills.
Internally, we refer to these issues as the plumbing system of real estate and our long-term opportunity. So there you have it. We're working on building the plumbing system of real estate, starting with property taxes.
TaxProper is an enterprise SaaS solution that acquires real-time property tax data, encodes local tax rules, and contains all of the operational workflows associated with property tax management. Our core products automate property tax payments, forecast future property tax liability, and help large real estate operators manage their property tax appeals.
It's still early, but we already cover more than 100,000 properties across the country and serve some of the most sophisticated public and private real estate operators and investors across the United States.
TaxProper was part of Y Combinator, and raised more than $2M from an outstanding group of investors, including Khosla Ventures, Global Founders Capital, Clocktower Ventures, and more.
