DG REFORM is supporting the Federal Ministry of Finance in modernising and digitalising the tax filing system in Austria. This project will pave the way for the development of a new IT system by providing the authorities with:
- an analytical report on strengthening the risk-based approach for assessing tax returns;
- technical specifications for a new IT solution with an algorithm for risk analysis.
Once implemented, the new IT solution will contribute to streamlining and automating the processes for assessing taxes; providing faster results with a higher quality of risk analysis and reducing the administrative burden for the tax authorities.
