WHAT DOES A REVENUE OFFICER DO? As a Revenue Officer you will serve as a civil enforcement officer, and perform collection related activities within the established laws, rules and regulations. The role of the Revenue Officer varies depending on the organization for which you are hired. For Field Collections, cases are primarily worked in the field. As a Revenue Officer you will be responsible for collecting delinquent accounts, secure delinquent tax returns, and/or performing a technical review of the collection activities to determine compliance. On the other hand, the Technical Reviewer is responsible for evaluating closed cases to determine if the conclusions reached are consistent with the tax laws, procedures and policy requirements. Regardless of the position you choose, each day is filled with new challenges, and offers many opportunities for personal and professional growth.
As a Revenue Officer you will:
Perform extensive and complex research on available background material concerning industry practices and any applicable interpretations of precedent setting court cases.
Examine voluminous and complex books and records which may be incomplete, poorly organized, or intentionally disorganized or arranged in order to conceal the true nature of payment to individuals, including cash or barter transactions, requiring considerable reconstruction of records.
Use investigative, interviewing, and fact-finding techniques to determine the position of the Service as to whether taxes have been accurately reported and paid.
Identify income and excise tax issues, employee plan issues, and potential tax fraud issues, and refer them as appropriate to the appropriate organization for resolution.
Research available guidelines and reference material, to resolve complex questions of tax law that may have arisen during the course of the examination. Such questions usually involve issues for findings which could be legitimately contested by a different interpretation of the law, ruling, or precedents.
