Partnering with the Alabama Department of Revenue, the Government & Economic Development Institute at Auburn University provides an educational program to assist State and county property tax personnel achieve more equitable administration of the property tax laws of the State of Alabama.

The program is designed to enhance appraisal, mapping, and management skills so that participants may be certified by the State. Those eligible to achieve certification are county elected and appointed property tax officials and the Property Tax Division staff of the Alabama Department of Revenue.
