PVC Subcommittee

Purpose: The Property Valuation Training and Procedures Commission (PVC) is an eleven-member commission that has the statute authority to establish uniform, statewide procedures for the maintenance, publishing, and selling of tax maps. On 17 January 2013 the PVC appointed a Subcommittee to review issues involving valuation, mapping, and monitoring.

Recommendations: The Subcommittee met on 1 May 2013 and again on 5 September 2013, whereby the Subcommittee recommended that new digital guidelines for tax maps be approved by the Commission at its next meeting on 13 November 2013 in Flatwoods, WV. Since certain existing map regulations date back to 1990 and only apply to paper tax maps, the Subcommittee recommended that these new guidelines be adopted to address` the increased use of geographic information systems (GIS) and web-based technologies that have revolutionized the ability of assessors to disseminate, access, and link parcel data.
