Tax Systems Modernization:
Status of Planning & Technical Foundation
(Summary only)

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is better off this year but is not yet ready to successfully build Tax Systems Modernization (TSM) systems. First, IRS has not defined its business needs in detail, which hampers TSM projects. Second, major gaps in technical and management standards put IRS at risk that systems built today may not connect to systems produced in the future and that systems placed into operation may be plagued with logistical and operational problems.
