Information Technology Controls Over the Personal Income Tax System

The Department of Taxation and Finance uses its automated Personal Income Tax System to process and store sensitive taxpayer information. We examined the Departmentís disaster readiness and its controls over data security. We found that, while extensive security controls had been implemented by the Department, certain improvements could be made. Due to the sensitivity of these areas, our detailed findings and recommendations were not included in our report, but were presented separately to Department officials.
