City begins implementation of new modernized integrated revenue system
The City of Kansas City, Mo., Finance Department is announcing the replacement of its current legacy computer system with a modern, integrated revenue system called RevKC. This new system will support the essential functions of tax administration and compliance for the earnings tax, business license, utility taxes, convention and tourism taxes, property taxes, special assessments, and the arena fee.
It is anticipated that other fees and service charges collected by the City will also be integrated into the system in future phases. The initial implementation process will take two years to complete. FAST Enterprises won the City bid to implement GenTax, an off the shelf tax program.
Mari Ruck, commissioner of revenue, said she looks forward to the implementation of the new system, especially to see how its efficiency and streamlining of processes will benefit Kansas City taxpayers.
“This new system will replace an aging legacy system. It will allow taxpayers amenities not available with the old system,” Ruck said. “Account information about previous filings and payments, refund status, bills, filing requirements and communications to and from the Finance Department’s Revenue and Treasury Divisions will be available. In addition, improved electronic filing options will be available.”
Media inquiries and other requests for information should be directed to Mari Ruck, commissioner of revenue, at 816-513-1106.
