Indiana DOR Uses Data & Analytics to Help Save Millions

According to the 2018 Report to the Nations—a study of more than 2,690 occupational fraud cases published by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners—proactive data monitoring and analysis reduced the duration and median loss due to occupational fraud by 58 percent and 52 percent, respectively.

The Indiana Department of Revenue (DOR) would probably agree with those statistics. According to the Times of Northwest Indiana, the Indiana DOR halted more than $9.7 million in improper payments during the 2018 budget year due to identity theft prevention and refund fraud detection programs. The Indiana DOR has become a national leader in tax fraud prevention by combining innovative technology and anti-fraud specialists, along with partnerships with other tax agencies.
