IRS Enterprise Data Management Office – Background
  • Data management work and XML standards being performed by PRIME Enterprise Data Management (EDM)
    • EDM is EDMO support contractor
    • CSC is PRIME integration contractor for IRS Systems Modernization
    • Coalition of CSC, IBM, Northrop Grumann, and others
irs enterprise data management office background1
IRS Enterprise Data Management Office – Background
  • XML plays large role in Systems Modernization
    • Tax returns and forms from external providers
    • Storage of tax returns as received, plus modifications
    • Inter-system messaging
  • IRS had many independent XML initiatives
    • Inter-operability was jeopardized
    • Wheels were being re-invented
    • Each project learned as it went
irs enterprise data management office background2
IRS Enterprise Data Management Office – Background
  • Tax data in XML
    • Also increasingly: tax returns are converted to XML and processed/stored
    • All tax forms must be retained as originally submitted … increasingly in XML from 3rd party providers and large corporations
    • Eventually most tax forms and returns will be in XML format in IRS
    • Tax Year 2004 return projections:
      • 1120 (Corp): 6M
      • 94x (Employment): 30M
      • 1040: 134M
  • Impact of XML
    • 2004 projections
      • 1120 returns (Corp): 100k
      • 94x returns (Employment): 29M
    • XML schemas can amplify data
      • Some 1120 schema instances up to 350 MB
