Rpr/Remdl Tax  209  0 Started by  Wagenmaster Can someone explain the difference between using the Comm Rpr/Remdl tax and the regular tax rate Why would I use one over the other This is a commercial policy and using the Comm Rpr/Remdl tax rate adds $4,309.32 over the regular tax rate of $8.25! I've checked the Tx DOI website for clarification, but can't seem to get a straight answer. I used the regular tax rate of 8.25 on my estimate and the roofer used the Comm Rpr/Remdl tax rate which also shows to be 8.25 and there is the $4,309.32...

5 Replies and 2580 Views Xactimate 28  2580  5 Started by  Ray Rossetti I was informed by an Xactimate support Technician that you can only open 28 if you have internet access available because of password authentication. This may cause huge issues after major storms when there is often little to no internet or cell phone/card access available in the storm areas. This means if there no internet available you will not be able to complete any estimates to upload later. They say once you open 28 you can work offline but you can not open it without internet access. ...

When I put in the parameterize that it's ACV of course I get the non recoverable depreciation on the final numbers. MY team lead says I need to take out the wording Non recoverable and make it recoverable. I change it to an RCV policy to show the depreciation, but I then get this residual deductible showing on the final. The insured's damages are under their deductible. Is there anyway around this Am I doing something wrong please help.

They informed me it would be the only time they could renew the 27 demo. After this they want me to subscribe and pay for it. Xactimate is getting to tight fisted w/ their service.I think this could upset people .I guess Xactimate thinks they have the market tied up so they can make the rules to fit their fancy.
