What are Tax Records?

Tax Records are documents related to property taxes, employment taxes, taxes on goods and services, and a range of other taxes. These records can include property tax assessments, appraisals, and income taxes. Certain types of Tax Records are available to the general public, while some Tax Records are only available by making a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

Many public Tax Records are related to property. This includes mortgages, property assessments, property tax payments, and tax liens. Real estate Tax Records are available for both commercial and residential properties. These Tax Records can help prospective buyers or property developers understand the historical property tax trends for a particular property or parcel. The property information contained in property Tax Records can also be useful for local real estate agents.

Federal, state, and local tax authorities also gather Tax Records into reports that are available to the public. These tax reports provide statistical information regarding tax payments, as well as information on how tax proceeds were spent. These reports allow the public to understand how their tax dollars are being used at different levels of government. Tax Record reports can also help government agencies identify problems with tax collection or distributions.

Employment Tax Records are maintained by government agencies and businesses. These records contain information on taxes tied to employment, such as income taxes, Social Security and Medicare taxes, unemployment taxes, and other employment-related taxes. Businesses are required to save their Tax Records for a specific amount of time. Self-employed workers are also required to maintain and file tax reports on their earnings.

Governments may also maintain Tax Records on a range of taxed goods and services, including cigarettes, alcohol, fuel, and some luxury items. These Tax Records may include information both on the collection of taxes and the distribution of tax funds. In most cases, taxes on goods are assessed by the state legislature. Many of these documents are available to the public.
