In the fall of 2007, New York State's Office of Real Property Services (ORPS) established the Centralized Property Tax Administration Program (CPTAP) to encourage county and local municipal officials to study reform opportunities for their local real property assessment and tax administration systems. Wayne County was one of 51 counties to receive a CPTAP grant to explore opportunities for collaborative assessment. Following a Request-for-Proposal process in the summer of 2008, the County engaged CGR Inc. (Center for Governmental Research) to conduct its centralized property tax study.
