2019 Winner Profile

Internal Revenue Service

Project Description:
The Return Review Program (RRP) helps detect, resolve, and prevent criminal and civil tax refund fraud and non-compliance, maximizes fraud detection in real-time, and protects revenue from the risks of increasing global fraud sophistication. RRP is mission-critical for the IRS and incorporates multiple analytical techniques. The system correlates data across multiple data sources and allows the IRS to create predictive models for fraud and non-compliance. RRP's return on investment is over 1,600% and it has helped reduce identity theft by over 60% since 2015, when it first went live.
