Department of Taxation and Finance
Performance of Tax Compliance
Agents (Follow-Up Review) When State taxes become overdue, the
Department of Taxation and Finance assigns agents from its Tax Compliance Division to
collect the overdue taxes. In our prior audit report 93-S-44, we concluded that improvements
could be made in the procedures used by the Department to ensure that tax collections are
maximized. For example, we identified large variances in the collection rates of different
agents. If the Department monitored these rates and focused on the agents or areas of the
State with low rates, it could improve the overall tax collection rate. We made several
recommendations aimed at improving these rates. In our follow-up review, we found that
only limited progress has been made in implementing these recommendations.
