Project Overview Backend Revenue Accounting was a conversion from a Front-End Revenue Accounting model to a Back- End Revenue Accounting model for all taxes processed by the Taxation & Revenue Department (TRD). It is used to track detailed information about monies in GenTax® distributed into revenue accounts. It also provides greater revenue detail about the actual disposition of revenue in the system. Collection Standalone allows for downloading collection information to remote devices. This functionality allows collectors remote access to their cases while in the field.
Project Overview Collection Outsourcing allows TRD to pursue taxes owed to the State of New Mexico by referring delinquent accounts to a contractor. TRD will assign accounts with delinquent liabilities to a contractor based on criteria defined by the Audit and Compliance Division.

Auditors are also able to give the taxpayers more information at the time of their visit.
