WELCOME TO TIGERS - A TASK GROUP of ANSI ASC X12

What is TIGERS? It is the source for electronic data interchange format standards for tax and revenue administration. TIGERS was formed in 1991 to address EDI standards, but has worked with XML standards since 2000. TIGERS stands for "Tax Implementation Group for E-Commerce Requirements Standardization," but we are really Task Group 2 of the ANSI Accredited Standards Committee X12 Government Subcommittee.

TIGERS is recognized by the IRS as the official source of state XML standards for Fed/State Modernized eFile programs for all tax types. TIGERS is also chartered to develop technical standards for compliance with the Streamlined Sales Tax Agreement. Other nationally implemented standards include the Fed/State Employment Taxes (FSET) program and the Motor Fuel Uniformity Committee Electronic Commerce filing program.

As a part of X12, TIGERS is open to all interested organizations, including federal and state government agencies, developers of tax software, tax practitioners and transmitters, and taxpayer organizations. All data standards are approved through a strict process of consensus voting.
