Agency and customer needs drive our strategy—we develop and leverage technologies that help shape the ways that people and businesses interact with the government.

Transforming Tax Collections (T2C)

The Cleveland Fed is modernizing the world’s largest tax-collection system on behalf of the US Treasury through a new initiative called T2C. T2C comprises driving the strategy, development, delivery, and operation of a modernized tax-collection service that efficiently collects federal tax payments via digital channels.

Payment Services

Treasury Services signature product is a web portal for individuals and business to make secure online payments to government agencies. The website processed more than 221 million transactions valued at more than $205 billion in 2019 from sources such as electronic debits, credit and debit cards, digital wallet with PayPal, and Amazon Pay. Additionally, we manage a central processing hub for collecting check and electronic check and debit transactions, with annual volumes of more than 299 million transactions valued at over $770 billion. This movement of government funds from commercial bank accounts to the Treasury requires strategic business partnerships with commercial authorization and settlement providers.

Our portfolio also supports operational activities for a web-based data warehouse containing all revenue collection transactions, which provides federal agencies and the Treasury with detailed business intelligence and analytics centered on revenue collections activities.
