Follow-Up Report on the Program Evaluation and Justification Review for the General Tax Administration Program, Report No. 98-77, April 1999
Full report in PDF format

  • In response to our justification review, the department has undertaken several initiatives to improve its efficiency and effectiveness in collecting tax revenues. For example, the department has improved its timeliness in processing intangible tax receipts, resulting in a net increase of $228,864 in revenue.
  • However, the department has not implemented our recommendation to change its audit strategy in order to increase audit recoveries. The department has continued to employ an audit selection strategy that achieves 80% coverage of the taxes remitted to the department. We believe that the department could generate an additional $30.5 million in audit recoveries if it examined the rate of return received from audits of different types of tax accounts and increased coverage for the types of accounts that produce the highest return.
