Tax Map is an application that IRS is using to help their call center employees better answer questions from taxpayers, and to provide the general public with topic-oriented access to IRS's diverse information products.
Tax Map's ease of use is due to its internal sophistication. Tax Map imposes no constraints on existing local production processes, and it contains auditing tools featuring a graph navigation system helping maintainers ensure high product quality.
IRS Tax Map is based on the ISO 13250 Topic Maps standard, which establishes a rhetoric for sharing and integrating information about shared subjects of conversation that may be discussed in diverse ways. other large enterprises, the IRS consists of diverse and evolving local cultures, and there is need for globally integrating the information they produce.
