To inform staff that on December 31, 2012, we implemented Enterprise Data to Revenue (EDR) Release 1.0.1.

Background

Beginning December 31, 2012 we are scanning the entire personal income tax (PIT) paper filed returns including any attached W-2s, schedules, and checks received for tax year 2012, and tax year 2008 and prior 540 2EZ, 540A, 540, and 540NR.

Note: PIT amended returns (540X) are no longer part of Release 1.0.1. However, the entire return is scanned and viewable XXXXX.
