The success of RDF’s data-sharing and risk management system, FUSION, has led to the decision to initiate a grand scale-up. Under the umbrella of the Revenue Integration Project in Cameroon, with support from GIZ, RDF will develop the first module that will be the basis of the RD TAS system. The module will be used for annual tax return processing, submitted online by taxpayers.
Last year, the RDF Board of Directors decided that building a TAS system is a strategic objective for RDF. Development of the system is now on schedule for first release in January 2019. The system will use the latest web-based technology, including scalable and dynamic form creation, a cloud-based e-service taxpayer portal and integration APIs. The software will be made available free of license costs also to other governments in low-income countries, following RDFs model of support.
