Registration Information Sharing and Exchange Program (RISE)

The Registration Information Sharing and Exchange Program (RISE) allows government agencies that participate in the program to periodically exchange specific tax information with the Florida Department of Revenue. Since many tax administering agencies commonly deal with a significant number of the same taxpayers, agencies may improve registration and enhance revenue collections by exchanging information.

Upon signing an agreement with the Department, each government agency participating in the program is responsible for transmitting its shared data to the Department within 20 days after the close of the reporting period using the format in the signed RISE agreement. The RISE program has two levels of participation depending on the taxes administered by the government agency.

For more information on RISE, contact the Department's General Tax Administration Program at RevenueAccounting@floridarevenue.com.
