SERVING THE

NORTHWEST

A Little Green

LaMATS partner Millage Management LLC boosted available revenue for the Town of Greenwood by more than $14K since 2017 through assistance with reassessment of millage rates and Roll Forward process.

"There would be no reason for a town not to take advantage of the expertise and support that is offered from utilizing the services offered through the LMA by Kristyn Childers of Millage Management. Kristyn made my job easier by her knowledge and expertise of the ever-changing tax laws."

On Good Terms

The City of Minden consulted with LPS and financing partner Government Capital Corp. (GCC) to purchase a new bucket truck. They needed favorable long term financing to work the annual payment into the budget. Working with GCC to arrange financing, the council approved the purchase and took the opportunity to bundle it with a gradall excavator, financing both pieces of equipment with a 10 year term and a lower interest rate than if they had conducted the purchases separately.

A Sound Policy

For more than two decades, LaMATS has offered a valuable service to help municipalities receive their due insurance premium taxes (IPT) to the tune of over $300 million so far! More than 30 municipalities in the state's Northwest (and over 200 statewide) entrust LaMATS to handle all facets of IPT collection. This service is proven to increase collections, streamline the process, and significantly reduce delinquent tax payments from insurance companies. The insurance industry appreciates that there is a single collection point for municipalities, because it saves them time and money when making their annual payment.

"We appreciate the LaMATS IPT and Millage Management services and the positive impact each are having on our community. Local government needs to assure that every revenue source is maximized, and LaMATS helps us do that."
