When It Counts

Reduce Risk and Gain Efficiency

APG boasts one click ordering, directly through your closing platform. Our proprietary system identifies taxing entity records and provides our tax experts with up-to-the-minute data as they compile your tax certificate. The advantage is clear over traditional property tax certificate generation that relies on weekly, bi-weekly or often monthly bulk tax role purchases from counties. Some certificate providers require customers to send an email or call in their order request.  APG uniquely provides real-time accuracy delivered to you automatically.
