    Hi, everyone. Una preguntita, por favor: what would be the most common translation for "appraisal district" in Latinoamérica? That is to say, the local government authority that is in charge of appraising residential property and then collects property and other local taxes?

    thanks abeltio. what is called "tasar" in Argentina might also be called "evaluar" in México or Perú. I was wondering, if I use the term "distrito fiscal", would someone from Latin America know intuitively what I was referring to?

    Distrito fiscal in Argentina would be understood as the jurisdiction of a certain court.
    In México it may make sense...
