How to transmit IVP forms to us for data entry
If you choose to have our department do the data entry for your IVP forms, bear in mind that there are a couple of changes from last year:
We are not accepting the forms via fax this year. You can continue to transmit the forms to us via a secure email account, United States Postal Service, or hand delivery.
Note: Secure email is efficient and fast. If you haven’t set up an account yet, it’s easy. Email your name, municipality, and phone number to email@example.com to request a Secure Communications (SCOM) account. We will send account information and instructions to you. Do not send IVP forms through regular email.
If the mailing address, which is included on Form RP-425-E, is different than the property address, insert Form RP-425-E directly behind the corresponding Form RP-425-IVP. Otherwise, do not include any stapled documents or other attachments, such as tax documents or worksheets.
Similar to last year:
- Include Form RP-425.5-IVP, Enhanced STAR IVP RP-425-IVP Transmittal Form on the top of each batch.
- Limit each batch to a maximum of 50 IVP forms.
- Batch mobile homes and cooperatives separately and provide a separate transmittal form.
For detailed instructions, visit How to transmit IVP forms to the Tax Department.
