RPTS calculates the apportionment of the semi-annual mortgage tax distribution, prepares tax warrants and state mandated reports, and participates in the training of local assessors. RPTS supports an on-line assessment processing system for the local assessors. RPTS processes Certificates of Residency for annual community college chargebacks to towns.
