Rhode Island Integrated Tax System is Live with Over Fifty Taxes

March 21, 2017. Pembroke, MA – Revenue Solutions, Inc. (RSI), a company that specializes in providing revenue and compliance management products and services to federal, state and municipal government revenue, labor and child support agencies, is pleased to announce that the Rhode Island Division of Taxation successfully went live with Release 3 of its Revenue Premier® implementation in November 2016.

This third Revenue Premier release, providing Taxation with a proven Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) Integrated Tax System from RSI, includes the retirement of the legacy mainframe system for over fifteen business taxes including Corporate, Sales, Meals & Beverage, Hotel, and Withholding, collections for business taxes, and field audit work papers capabilities.

“We’re delighted to announce that we are live with our new integrated tax system,” said Rhode Island Tax Administrator Neena Savage. “The STAARS system is up and running, on time and on budget.  We are handling roughly 58 different tax types, everything from cigarettes, to alcohol, to sales tax, personal tax and corporate tax.  All of those are now integrated in a single solution – previously each one was separate. It has been a great partnership with RSI.”
