Department of Taxation and Finance
Office of Tax Enforcement:
Performance Measurement The Office of Tax Enforcement identifies and
investigates the possible evasion of New York State taxes. We examined the procedures used by
the Office to monitor its own performance and found that improvements are needed. The Office
does not have measurable goals and objectives, and does not use performance indicators to
assess its performance. As a result, the Office cannot adequately assess its efficiency and
effectiveness. Office officials agree that performance indicators could be useful, and worked
with us in developing various indicators that are relevant to the Office's performance. These
indicators are disclosed in our report.
