PROVIDENCE – The R.I. Division of Taxation has tapped Revenue Solutions Inc. for its integrated tax system.
According to a news release, the division sought a software package complete with hardware and related implementation, maintenance and support services, including the availability of new versions of the software during the term of the contract. Revenue Solutions said it will provide a full suite of processing and administration functionality through its Revenue Premier product for 56 taxes and fees currently administered by the state. It will allow for the addition of other tax and licensing programs that may be enacted in the future.
In its evaluation summary, the state noted that “Revenue Solutions Inc.’s technical approach, references, work record and costs are excellent. ... [The company] has extensive experience with implementing integrated tax systems for state revenue and tax agencies. ... [And the firm’s] proposal is very extensive and complete.”
The contract between Rhode Island and RSI is divided into three releases, with the first focusing on the conversion of 36 miscellaneous tax types and fees from disparate “off-line” systems, and the second and third focusing on the phasing out of the state existing mainframe tax system and the rollout of a new public-facing taxpayer portal. •
