(TNS) — Faulkner County Tax Collector Sherry Koonce announced that county tax roll information can be instantly accessed for free online after partnering with Data Scout, LLC.

Data Scout is a web-based data solutions provider and database management firm that will host and maintain the website and the records, Koonce said.

"In addition to the tax roll information search, users can also view the history of tax records dating back five years for both personal and real property," Koonce said.

The information is available at www.actdatascout.com.

"It was time to move the county's personal and real property tax roll information online, making the information more accessible to serve the public better," Koonce said, adding that she "believes this technology is one of the best available to her office."

Once the software became an option for tax collectors in Arkansas, Koonce said, she knew it was time to go online.

"A few of the items users can expect to see online are current and delinquent status, proof of payment and taxpayer history," she said. "Transparency of the County Collector's information with online accessibility and ease of use for the taxpayers led to the decision to provide this information to the public."
