HP, Oracle bolster Kentucky tax system

On Monday, HP and Oracle announced that the Commonwealth of Kentucky has deployed a new Comprehensive Tax System (CTS) designed to improve revenue administration and collection functions for its Department of Revenue, Finance and Administration Cabinet. HP Enterprise Services is using the Oracle® Enterprise Taxation Management application and Oracle Database to facilitate the modernization effort, which is designed to improve user experience for taxpayers, reduce fraud and enable timely collection, reporting and interpretation of tax information.

“The combined efforts of the Commonwealth, HP and Oracle have provided Kentucky with an enhanced tax system purposed to increase taxpayer satisfaction while streamlining state revenue collection, ” said Commonwealth of Kentucky commissioner Tom Miller.

The Oracle Enterprise Taxation Management application is a secure, tax-specific, commercial off-the-shelf software solution with tools for site-specific customization. It enables improved integration with other enterprise systems and will allow the Commonwealth to consolidate tax processing functions.

“The new tax system is designed to help the Kentucky Department of Revenue enhance its citizen-centric services while allowing the Commonwealth to improve tax administration and collection efficiency, ” said Dennis Stolkey, senior vice president, U.S. Public Sector, HP Enterprise Services.

More is on the way for CTS, with next major deployment include the development of a taxpayer portal to enable taxpayers to register businesses, file returns, make payments and make account inquires online. Future releases of the system are planned to support sales, withholding, corporate and individual income taxes.
