Ky. opts for automated tax system

The commonwealth of Kentucky has awarded a three-year contract to Electronic Data Systems Corp. to develop an automated tax system.

The contract is valued at $23.4 million for the first three years, and can be extended for two more years for a total value of $33.2 million.

The proposed Kentucky Comprehensive Tax System will automate tax administration and collections for Kentucky's Department of Revenue, Finance and Administration Cabinet. It also will enable taxpayers update personal data and file returns online.

To develop the system, EDS will use tax software from Oracle. CGI Group and Exstream Software also will work on the project with EDS.
