I had corespondence with Charlie Merriman - PVRs Attorney - and he verified
that the only responsibility of the Clerk after September 30th is that we
not accept any PVRs on the OLD form. He never said anything about us
verifying whether or not the PVR was filled out correctly. He has asked,
however, should we get an old PVR on a property that transferred a while
ago the we give them a call at PVR on that particular issue. The number
there is 828-5860. Hope this helps...Paulette

Hi Judy,

Does this mean we are to become employees of the tax department? It used to
be the clerk's job was to make sure a PTR was filed and the tax dept.'s job
to make sure it was correct.  What liabilities are we as clerks assuming?
 I think there needs to be some discussion prior to our accepting this
