1.Overview of Roll Corrections #

Roll Correction functions in PACS Appraisal allow you to change property records in a certified year with the use of supplement groups and supplement numbers.

A unique numbering system for supplement groups and supplements allows you to manage property records changed in supplement mode.

Note: We strongly recommend that assessor offices balance the values of property records that have been supplemented after the supplement acceptance is complete. For more information, see Balancing the Supplement Group.
