Guam - Hoping to bring in some much-needed revenue, the Department of Revenue & Taxation is working in conjunction with the Department of Public Works and Land Management to implement the computer assisted mass appraisal project. This project includes a tax mapping program that will use satellite imagery to identify all untaxed properties, such as escape assessments and improved properties.

DRT Director John Camacho said, "I think this project is very beneficial for the government; it's going to produce additional revenue in the long run and it helps people to comply with the law."  

Camacho estimates that the tax mapping project will generate roughly $2,000,000 in revenue a year in its early stages.
