Employment: Tax Examiners, Collectors & Revenue Agents




In 2004, tax examiners, revenue agents, and collectors held about 76,000 jobs at all levels of government. About half worked for the Federal Government, 3 out of 10 for State governments, and the remainder in local governments. Among those employed by the IRS, tax examiners and revenue agents predominate because of the need to examine or audit tax returns. Collectors make up a smaller proportion, because most disputed tax liabilities do not require enforced collection.
