LexisNexis® Risk Solutions and Tax Management Associates, Inc. (TMA) today announced that Greenville County, SC has discovered nearly $3 million in new revenue by leveraging the companies' Homestead Exemption Fraud Detection program. The program combines the LexisNexis analytics technology and public records databases with TMA's investigative capabilities to help counties detect erroneous filings in their legal residence exemption program referred to in many states as a homestead exemption program and discover new revenue.

LexisNexis identified applications in Greenville County's legal residence exemption program were potentially erroneous by examining key indicators of improperly filed tax exemptions, such as:
• Exemptions filed by owners for rental properties;
• Individuals with multiple exemptions for multiple properties within South Carolina;
• Individuals with multiple exemptions for multiple properties across multiple states;
• Businesses receiving exemptions;
• Family members receiving exemptions under deceased property owners' names.

TMA further investigated the LexisNexis findings, verified the information and prioritized the accounts for collection by Greenville County. To date, the county has billed 2,552 accounts with delinquencies from anywhere from one to four years and collected more than $1 million.

"This program has helped us to find nearly $3 million in new revenue," said Debbie Adkins, assessor, Greenville County. "It has definitely provided a return on the county’s investment."

Greenville County is showing its taxpayers that it is a trusted steward of taxpayer dollars, committed to discovering and correcting improperly requested tax benefits, as well as detecting and preventing fraud," said Haywood Talcove, chief executive officer, Government, LexisNexis Risk Solutions. "County governments are still experiencing difficult economic times, and every instance of improperly granted tax exemptions whether misfiled by the taxpayer intentionally or unintentionally deprives the government of dollars needed to fund critical government services like police, fire safety and education. We applaud Greenville County's leadership in aggressively tackling this challenge with new technology and innovative investigative approaches."

"Finding individuals who improperly file for homestead exemptions has traditionally been labor intensive and, in many cases, cost prohibitive," said Richard (Chip) Cooke, Jr. chief executive officer, TMA. "With this program, counties rely on LexisNexis and TMA to do the heavy lifting, enabling them to focus on their core competencies of billing and collections. We are honored to have the opportunity to support Greenville County and be a small part of their efforts to ensure all taxpayers pay their fair share."
