Ron Wright, Tax Assessor Collector for Tarrant County, recently completed the educational requirements for the Professional County Collector (PCC) designation. This updated certification program became effective on January 1, 2014, and replaces the old Registered Tax Assessor (RTA) designation that had been in place for several years. He was awarded a Certificate of Completion on January 1, 2014.
Tax Assessor Collectors throughout the state are required to be an active member of the Tax Assessor Collectors Association, an organization that provides Tax Assessor Collectors with valuable resources, information, networking opportunities and advocacy. A Tax Assessor Collector must complete 20 hours of rigorous continuing education annually, with at least 10 of those hours on laws relating to the assessment and collection of property taxes. In addition, a Tax Assessor Collector must complete education courses on ethics and on the constitutional and statutory duties of the county Tax Assessor Collector within ninety days of taking office. Under the former RTA certification, all Tax Assessor Collectors were given five years to complete the certification. Wright began the coursework for the new designation as soon as he took office in May 2011, and within 2 « years he successfully completed all coursework.
This professional designation shows Wright's commitment to excellence when it comes to serving the taxpayers. He feels the knowledge and information gained through the required coursework allows him to effectively carry out the duties of his office, and allows the taxpayers to feel confident that Wright and his staff continue to provide taxpayer services in the most efficient and professional manner possible.
