Data Warehouse Bureau
The Data Warehouse Bureau supports the Audit & Compliance Division in the identification and collection of unpaid taxes owed to New Mexico. The Bureau processes data from a variety of sources and compares this information to departmental tax records to ensure consistency in tax collection. The results of this comparison are utilized to identify taxpayers whose data is not consistent with the comparison data such as Federal Tax returns, Employment Tax records, and a variety of other data sources.
The result of this activity allows TRD to focus on taxpayer audits that are selected through computerized matching. The goal of the process is to select audits that have the highest likelihood of success and since its inception in 2006, the ITD Data Warehouse Bureau has assist TRD in the collection of over $36 million in taxes that would have otherwise gone uncollected.
