California – New Technologies to Increase Tax Compliance

SALT Report 1660 – The state of California is investing $270,000,000 in new technologies that will impact virtually all areas within the Board of Equalization. The new program is called the Centralized Revenue Opportunity System (CROS) and will replace the BOE’s outdated Integrated Revenue Information System (IRIS) and the Automated Compliance Management System (ACMS).
CROS will allow the state to quickly implement new legislation, new taxes, new fees, and new rate changes; will improve the audit process; will increase the collection of taxes and fees, and will allow the BOE to share data with their federal, local, and state partners.  The BOE estimates that CROS will generate $200 million per year in additional revenue for the state.
The CROS program iwill be implemented in 2016.
