New York City Department of Finance

Controls Over the FairTax System

The New York City Department of Finance collects business taxes and maintains information about these taxes on its automated FairTax system. We audited the adequacy of the Departmentís controls over this system and found that certain improvements were needed. So as not to compromise the security of the FairTax system, our detailed findings and recommendations were not included in our report, but were presented separately to Department officials throughout the course of our audit.
