TTR Assists Colorado Department of Revenue With Uniform Sales Tax Base

MCMINNVILLE, OR -- (Marketwired) -- 01/21/14 -- Transaction Tax Resources is pleased to announce its assistance to the Colorado Department of Revenue (the "Department") in establishing a uniform sales and use tax base throughout the state.

Faced with nearly 300 taxing authorities with different tax rules and rates, Colorado has set to work to reduce the complexity of its existing tax structure and reduce the burden on those doing business in the state. The Colorado legislature tasked the Department with providing recommendations to achieve a uniform sales and use tax base. The Department collected information from each home rule municipality indicating whether the locality taxes or exempts items that are exempted from the state's sales tax base.

TTR was commissioned to assist Colorado in verifying the validity of the data collected, which would have been an impossible task for any other tax research provider given the DOR deadlines. This was a formidable task given the Department's tight deadline. TTR was able to analyze each home rule municipality's data, compare it to the state's sales tax base using TTR's existing online tax matrix, develop a local sales tax matrix, and deliver that local matrix to the Department in record time.

Here is how the Department described TTR's role in a document to be submitted to the Colorado Governor, President of the Senate, and Senate Majority Leader:

"Once data was gathered, a third party, TTR, was commissioned to assist in verifying the validity of the data. This effort was a monumental task undertaken in a very short time frame by TTR. This company undertook this effort to develop Colorado's local sales tax matrix to further refine their commercially available sales tax compliance product. They did so at no cost to the State and under the Department's deadlines."

Additionally, a Department official had this to say about TTR's assistance:

"As a state official, I could only imagine the value TTR provides to its clients. TTR has helped us tremendously in the past few months in determining the taxability of various items across our state. Without their help, we would have spent thousands of hours in creating the tax matrix they provided for us. I looking forward to our continued work with TTR, as they truly are the best at what they do."

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats.

Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology.

Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
