Write one (or 3) PHP script(s) utilizing PHP (with or without Curl) to scrape to retrieve and store pages from three selected county Treasurer sites. The goal is to retrieve property taxes payable GIVEN a parcel’s identification number, referred to as an “APN” (Assessor’s Parcel Number). APNs normally take the form xxx-xx-xxx-x (Book-Map-Parcel-Split). The sole objective of this assignment is to write the code that obtains the relevant pages to parse. The parsing and data management once the page has been downloaded is not part of the job. Again, the only task is to write a scraper that downloads pages from three specificTreasurers’ sites, given parcel identification numbers and the tax year.

Specific URLs and test data will be provided.
