    hi
    the income tax office comes under the staff selection commission, SSC.
    This is the department which is directly headed under the SSC. And for joining this you need to appear in the examination which is conducted by the SSC.
    And for giving this exam, you need to follow the certain eligibility criteria that you should be a graduate in any stream from a recognized indian university with a minimum of 55% aggregate marks and your age should be in between 21-30 years.

    Hi, Income Tax officer exams is conducted by SSC (Staff Selection Committee). In order to apply for this position, you need to be a graduate with minimum of 55% marks from a recognised university. In addition, you need to be a citizen of India between 18 - 27 years of age (The upper age limit is relaxed by 3 years for OBC candidates and 5 years for SC/ST candidates). As far as the duties of an Income Tax Officer is concerned, He/she deals with the income tax related matters of the Central Board of Direct Taxes acronym as CBDT, a department of Central Government in India. Their prime responsibility is to bring the defaulters of income tax (those who do not pay to the Government as per their income) to the notice of the Income Tax Department so that they can be asked to pay their tax as per their real income. Thanks.

    Income tax officers are not directly recruited by SSC.
    SSC recruits income tax inspectors who subsequently becomes an income tax officer after promotion.
    For recruitment as an IT Inspector you have to appear for Combined Graduate Level (CGL) Examination conducted by SSC.
    Income tax inspector is a coveted post in CGL so you have to score very high marks in the examination (-Tier I, II and interview) to be considered.
