House Revenue Committee members and staff met at the Dept. of Revenue (DOR) in Salem, OR. Elizabeth Harchenko, Director of the DOR, welcomed the members and introduced her staff members. Larry Gasperini, Manager of the Processing Center, gave a high-level overview of tax return and payment processing. As of 03/11/05, 385,254 electronic returns had been processed, a significant increase over previous years. He escorted the committee members to the processing and banking areas where the members were shown the work processes involved in both operations. The members then toured the Cartography unit where Brett Juul made a presentation of the map project currently underway that will digitize all pertinent maps for all 36 Oregon counties into one database. This project is scheduled to be completed by October, 2008.
