Implementing Demographic History
By Paula Speranza-Hadley on May 04, 2012
Revenue agencies are required to keep detailed records of all transactions both current and historical. When demographic changes are required (name changes, address changes etc.) to a taxpayer’s registration information, a record must be kept, which records the data that was updated, who updated the data, and when the data was updated. This data not only facilitates research of changes to demographic data, but also is an effective tool in preventing and detecting fraud related to taxpayer registration data.
This document will provide guidance for setting up demographic history in ETPM.
