1 GenTax® Upgrade to Version 9
Executive Sponsors Demesia Padilla, CPA Cabinet Secretary John Monforte Deputy Cabinet Secretary Greg Saunders Chief Information Officer April 18, 2012

2 Background GenTax® – tax system of record for New Mexico
Commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) product provide by Fast Enterprises, LLC First implemented in 2002 for Personal & Corporate Income Tax Implemented on time and on budget Currently 28 tax programs are processed in GenTax Manages tax revenue stream fluctuating between $5.5 and $6.5 billion annually

3 Background Accounting basis for TRD financial revenue processing
Manages the revenue stream from taxpayers to beneficiaries Processes all tax returns and payments System for Tax Audit and Compliance initiatives Repository for all historical tax information Used to enforce tax code compliance and combat tax fraud

4 Key Points Some modules in the current version are obsolete, no longer supported, and are cumbersome to use and maintain; TRD is unable to fulfill critical user requests and implement legislative mandates Lost revenue opportunities – inability to take advantage of new additional revenues of $14.5 million due to lack of implementation of New Refunds module, Tax Payer Offset Program, Discovery product, Business Credit Manager and other modern core revenue generation functionality

5 Key Points Fraud Prevention – current system is unable to identity & prevent millions in fraudulent activity each year Catastrophic failure- if GenTax suffers a catastrophic failure, NM will be unable to collect and distribute $6 billion in revenues

6 Benefits from Upgrade Significant annual reduction of fraudulent refunds as a result of upgraded Refunds module and data exchange functionality Additional new revenues annually resulting from more efficient processing due to an upgraded Taxpayer Offset Program module Significant increase in new revenues annually resulting from implementation of GenTax integrated data warehouse (Discovery). This module increases audit, collections, non-filer recoveries, real-time fraud prevention and return validation. Alabama Audit & Compliance Division: Without Discovery in FY 2008, $10 million. With Discovery in 2010, $17.7 million Illinois Audit & Compliance Collections: $44 million collected using leads generated by Discovery California Employment Development Department (unemployment compensation): Collection increase in 2010 of $29 millioln in new revenue in FY 2010 using Discovery

7 Benefits from Upgrade Annual savings in support & maintenance costs by incorporating the current data warehouse functionality into GenTax Considerable annual saving to General Fund resulting from implementation of Business Credit Manager functionality. This functionality ensures that revenue due to the State is fairly collected and distributed. Greater ability to satisfy user requests & legislative mandates Greatly reduce the risk of catastrophic failure by upgrading to version 9 of GenTax
