dsCurrentRef This data begins in the 2003 tax year, for taxes filed in 2004, and is current to the 2009 tax year, for taxes filed in 2010. Further updates are on hold due to a problem caused by a change in census block group boundaries in 2010. The change could make it possible to reverse engineer the data by splitting some of the old and new block groups in order to get more precise tax numbers as they pertain to a particular business; a way needs to be found to prevent this possible data disclosure.
