Accenture Ltd. has won a four-year, $27.9 million contract from the Nevada Department of Taxation to modernize its tax system, the company announced today.
Accenture of Hamilton, Bermuda, will assist the department in modernizing its operations by designing and building a new, unified tax system. The foundation for the system will be the company's tax administration application, which will help the state address main requirements, such as tax return processing and revenue distribution.
Accenture's team includes Revenue Solutions Inc. of Pembroke, Mass., and Covansys Corp of Farmington Hills, Mich. Revenue Solutions will handle tax compliance and audit requirements, while Covansys will assist with conversion to the new system, Accenture said.
Once the Web-enabled system is installed, Nevada taxpayers will be able to access tax-related information and conduct tax-related transactions online.
Accenture offers management consulting, technology services and outsourcing solutions to government and commercial clients. The company has about 95,000 employees and annual sales of $11.8 billion.
