About the TLSR Project
The Department of Revenue plays a pivotal role in the state’s economic vitality and business climate. In Fiscal Year 2014, our agency collected $19.6 billion in state and local taxes and processed more than 560,000 business license applications and renewals.
Revenue is replacing its aging tax and business licensing systems paving the way for significant improvements and safeguarding future revenue collections. The Tax and Licensing Systems Replacement (TLSR) project will implement an integrated system to enable more online services and create an easier environment for businesses to register and comply with business licensing and tax obligations. With improvements to self service, businesses and taxpayers will encounter new convenient features and increased access to their information. The new system will also ensure Revenue continues fulfilling its mission while transforming its business processes to align with industry best practice.
Revenue is collaborating with Fast Enterprises (FAST) to modernize the current system to a browser-based, highly-configurable solution that operates on industry standard technology. Based out of Colorado, FAST has implemented its nationally recognized tax and licensing solution, GenTax, over 30 times for various local, state and federal governments.
The new system will be implemented in three rollouts with the first rollout focusing on business licensing services set to launch in summer 2016. Rollouts 2 and 3 are focused on tax functions and will launch in 2017 and 2018 respectively. The system changes are set for completion in the fall of 2018.
