New York City Department of Finance

Controls Over the FairTax System (Follow-Up Report)

The New York City Department of Finance collects business taxes and maintains information about these taxes on its automated FairTax system. In audit 2006-N-12, we examined the adequacy of the Departmentís controls over this system and found that certain improvements were needed. When we followed up on these matters with Department officials, we found that some of our audit recommendations had been implemented, but others had not. Due to the sensitivity of the information, our detailed audit findings and recommendations were not included in either our original audit report or our follow-up report.
