The State Revenue Department is starting to use new technology to crack down on tax cheaters. It’s called the Tax Compliance System, and it all comes down to knowing exactly how much money taxpayers owe, and then collecting it. The Revenue Department’s Maura Browning says cross-referencing is not something new, but the task has been cumbersome and time consuming. Now, with computer cross-referencing, things will run more smoothly by making it easier to match records. Browning says this could mean huge revenues for Missouri – an estimated $40-Million to $45-Million over the first three years. A private contractor is designing and implementing the system for a flat-fee of $12.3-Million.
