Chapter 2.3 - Special Tax Jurisdictions

A Special Tax Jurisdiction is an area of a city or county that requires a tax for a specific purpose, applicable for entities such as:

  • Fire
  • Police
  • Ambulance
  • Library
  • Transportation
  • Economic Development
  • Cultural and Science

The boundaries of special tax jurisdictions can be arbitrary and may not be related to any other boundary, such as city limits. Some states contain Townships that segment a county into smaller sections. AFC Geo SaaS Pro Soap uses a special tax jurisdiction to identify a township when a township has different taxes than the county level.

Returning a special tax jurisdiction in the geocoding results is optional - use Options bitwise value 16 to enable Special Tax Jurisdictions. Not including the Special Tax Jurisdiction Options bitwise value returns the city or county where the Special Tax Jurisdiction is located.
