    Re: How can I become an Income tax officer?



    There is a common misconception among the students that the Civil Service are meant only for IAS, IFS and IPS.

    The other profile may not have as high but in terms of work and challeneges thay are just a rewarding.

    Besides IAS, IPS and IFS, Civil service also conatains two sub groups namely- Group- A and Group- B.

    So there are all total three categories in Civil service.

    Group- A contains:

    Indian Revenue Service

    Indian Accounts and Audit Service

    Indian P&T Accounts and Finance Service.

    Indian Civil account service

    Indian Postal Service

    Indian Railway Traffic Service

    Indian Railway Personnel Service

    Indian Railway Accounts Service

    Indian Ordanance Factory Service

    Indian Defence Estate Service

    Indian Information Service

    Post of Assistant Security officer in Railway Protection Force

    Group - B Contains:

    Railway BNoard Secretriate Service

    Armed Forces Headquarter Civil Service

    Custom Appraisers Service

    Indian Territoties Civl Service and Police Service

    Pondicherry Civil Service

    The Income Tax Department is a part of Indian Revenue Service(IRS).

    So, we have two modes of entries in Income Tax Department.


    1) Through Civil Service:.

    As I discussed above Income Tax Department is also a part of civil service, so the whole process is as same as for others its your ranking and scores in entrance which will decide you to get there. By going through Civil Service candidate can expect 'High Ranking Post' like- Assistant Commissioner etc.

    2) Through Staff Selection Commission (SSC):

    It is a Designated body of Government of India whose objective is to Recruite various types Group - 'C' or III level recruitment.

    Lower Division Post like- Sub-Inspector, Inspector, Assiatant etc. comes under group- C hece recruiment are made by SSC.

    Eiligibility: Candidate must be a Graduate in any decipline.

    Selection: it made through a Written Test and Interview. A combined Graduate Level Entrance is conducted whereas successfull candidates only are called for Interview by sending a call letter.

    Entrance are held generally in July and Notifictions re released in March-April in "Employment NEws"

    Re: How can I become an Income tax officer?

    For becoming an income tax officer, the minimum qualification is graduation. however a person above the age of 27 cannot apply for the same. firstly ,you need to clear SSC(short service commission).
    it is held in 3 parts- oral, written and physical. after clearing it ,you also need to appear for an interview. there are a number of good books available in the market for preparing for SSC.
    for the written test, you must prepare for subjects like general awareness, English, etc.
